Default Dana 80 brake conversion to disc instead of drum.

Have a Dana 80 out of a Ram 2500 M/T... Been researching up and down to convert the Dana 80 to rear disc instead of keeping it drums... I pretty much have all the parts on the shelve to do the kit but I can't find just the bracket to mount to the 80... I can find the 70 bracket by itself no problem... But the 80 I have to buy in a kit which I don't need cause I have the parts on the shelve... Been trying to find the bolt hole measurements on the axle flange for the 70 and 80 to compare the two but can't find anything... Anyone have the measurements or a link I can study? I will put rear disc setup on the 80... Just need help on this one part...

A&A mfg might be able to help otherwise too.

Reason I asked about disc brake swap was the general discontent with the upgrade from individuals with a 3/4 ton Chevy disc upgrade
