No, I'm using the 76(?) C10 crossmember, complete with upper / lower control arms and spindles.
I bought some 6-lug rotors from Early Classic Industries so that I could keep my original 6-bolt rear axle shafts and not have to carry 2 spares, LOL. Bearing and seal part numbers for these front rotors are the same as a 76 C10 2WD.
I did upgrade the rear brakes to 11-5/32 x 2-3/4 using the backing plates from the 76. Then I used 4x4 rear drums ... which have the same 6-lug bolt pattern. Kind of a neat solution, I thought.
