I just did the swap with the brackets from Great Lakes. They had a deal going on Pirate for $45 shipped. Used the same rotors and calipers as you bought. Rotors went on the back of the hub just like the factory drum. I have roughly $150 invested, not including the new bearings and seals for the hubs. Reused the original wheel studs also, seemed to fit great...

I would have went to a junk yard. Found a Ford that has a D60 under it 1999-newer. Then bought the brake assembly or whole axle from the junkyard. As the 99-newer fords that have the D60 have four wheel disc brakes.

Why? If all you need are inexpensive brackets and a few common, readily available parts, why bother with all the junkyard pieces? Sounds like a lot more work, probably more money, and in the end, a less reliable setup due to having used junkyard stuff instead of new parts.

Considering the 99-newer fords are so new I doubt it would be unreliable. I also doubt it would be a waste of time and money. Different people have different ways of doing things. You have your way I have mine, they both work and both are equal but still different.

...and a completely different (metric) bolt pattern.

They're sure different alright, but certainly not equal. His would work and yours would not. 99-up Ford 8-lug axles have a metric bolt pattern, assclown.

Edit: Damn you Cooter. I've been re-writing my smart-assed reply for like 10 minutes. :stan:

Yeah, a 99 is now at least 9 years old. I don't consider that so new that it would be totally reliable.

Ok well i went to put eveything together...........And It does not seem to work out quite so well. I have the front chevy Brackets off of a 1/2 ton. What is needed to be done to make these work on the 60 rear. Am i missing something or what? Does anyone have any pics of these brackets on a FF dana 60 rear?
