enjenjo 77 Seville uses the same caliper as the F body, and has a 5x5 pattern.

Centerline You have a Ford rear end so why not use Ford brakes. The 5 on 5 bolt pattern is a Ford bolt pattern and they did use disks on some of the larger Ford and Lincolns. I think you'd be better off just heading to the local wrecking yard and looking for a set of caliper brackets for your Ford 9" and then buying a set of Ford calipers and rotors. You can always have the axles and rotors re-drilled for a GM bolt pattern if you want.

9'' brake swap

hey guys, i just aquired a 9" rearend to fit g body. There arent any brakes on this unit although supposedly have f body brake mounts but a 5x5 circle on axles. I have never done a brake swap, so no idea what i should be looking for. I did find some rotor and calipers from 90 firebird that i believe should fit except for bolt pattern, will I be able to find 5x5 rotor that fits an f body caliper? seems like I be better off to drill axles or rotors? Any help appreciated. lost
