what rotors for pinto suspension

I am new to building hot rods and am trying to understand what parts fit what.I am building a 54 chev pickup and am installing a 80 pinto front crossmember and suspension.I want to replace small rotors with larger ones.
I dont want to go out and spend 4-600 dollars if i can find donor parts in the scrap yards.I would like to stay with chev pattern as the rear is camaro.I see basic kits advertised but can i purchase the other part from an auto parts store.Any help would be greatly appreciated. signed confused

Go to ecihotrodbrakes.com and look at their kits. I bought the basic kit for just the same reason as your looking at. You get the brackets, seals, and special outer nut in the kit, the rest you can get from a local supply house or at a salvage yard.

Thanks 48liner
I hate spending money on kits when you can hit a wrecking yard and get the pieces dirt cheap.That basic kit sounds exactly what i need.There were two kits one moves the wheels out 3 quarters of an inch.I presume this is for track width to match the rear axle or is there another reason. Thanks again

I believe that the use of the GM rotor requires a spacer where if you use the Ford rotor none is needed. I presume that the distance between inner and outer races is greater on the Ford rotor.

Cool

I'm using a Granada rotor on my front end and Granada calipers. With some bending, swearing, heating. cursing and banging I got the Granada caliper brackets to fit. A prettier way may be to buy an aftermarket bracket.
