Many aftermarket companies make the rotors with dual patterns...or can substitute the correct rotors. If they don"t, it is an easy matter to have them redrilled by any competant machine shop to the chevy pattern.

Here's my "low-buck" approach using 84-87 Corvette C4 front rotor and caliper assemblies on my 9" rear (small Ford end pattern and 5 on 4.75" bolt circle). The larger plate is 3/8" and adapts the C4 caliper bracket, the smaller plate is 1/8" and is a spacer to take up for where the (Ford) brake drum was. The brackets were drawn up in Autocad by my son and water-jet cut by a local shop for $40.00 (4 pieces). The pair of calipers, brackets, & hoses were $90.00 from an on-line junkyard, the rotors are new E-Bay jobs @ $90.00 a pair. Total in the rear brakes is ~ $260.00 with caliper kits, bolts, and new pads.

check out cad rear Disc

the cad FWD rear disc from the mid 80's have the chevy bolt pattern. I have seen guys put them on gm stuff ...also rivera parts should be the same as Cad ...some of the conversion kits for a 9 inch actually use the cad parts..

My rear Wilwood 160-5844 rotor hats have at least 2 and probably 3 sets of holes. I would bet if you researched Wilwood's website you would find exactly what you need







These are mounted on opposite sides of the original Wilwood design for e-brake cable and plumbing issues on a TCI "A" chassis

If you go the route that Dave is suggesting, get the part numbers from the wilwood website, then call Jegs or summit racing for the best price.

Pay attention to the hat to rotor mounting bolt circles as there are different patterns.

Also, order the mounting bolts, 1 kit for each rotor is required.

Later, mikey

I'd recommend the entire kit - mine came from Speedway as an inexpensive close out - and the bolts are included. And as a note, even my part numbers have been superceded in their new catalog.
