When I converted my 9" to disc brakes I used late 90's 4wd Dodge front rotors.

The only thing that I am seeing is that the big Dodge rotors run a little thin compared to a stock chevy rotor, and even to a ford rotor which many use for 5x5.5 conversions with chevy calipers.

Too thin? I dunno. I'm running chevy K10 calipers with ford f150 rotors in the rear, and they are 0.030" under the K10 rotor discard fresh out of the box but are doing fine. I think that's what Jim is running, too.

The dodge only takes it another 0.080" for the 2003 big rotors, but is about the same as the ford for the 2001 rotors.

Napa Part #'s

1975 Chevy 1/2 ton 4wd come with pads
Calipers #142-2022 and #142-2023

Parts Plus #'s

1995 Dodge 1/2 ton 4wd......because these fit over the stock flanges of the shafts with no grinding
Rotors P76447

1975 Chevy 1/2 ton 4wd
Brake Hoses #BH36761

Little Spacers from Lowe's....cut to fit inside the rotor where the lug stud slides through to center the rotor over the studs
the spacers are "Hillman" no part number but they measure 1/2 x 5/8 x 1
found them in the little hardware isle in the chest of drawers
If I remember I had to grind the brackets a bit to fit the tubes, but for the price it wasn't a big deal, but that was like 5 yrs ago. I have done ALOT of things since then

wasted alot of time and money today and ended up back at a 1995 dodge half ton rotor and chevy calipers. the newer dodge rotors at just to big for a 15 inch wheel. and the 1978 ford rotors required me to turn the rear shafts down which i did not want to do due since the axle is final assembled and full of fluid.

I have started it up, put it in gear at a idle, and sat there with a grinder for a few minutes, it really dont take to long.
