Hub Swap Problems

I just used a forged steel hub housing in replacement of the cast hub housing. Your supposed to use a different rotor, Chevy. Because the dodge rotor wont fit. All the bearings and seals are all the same. But the rotor doesnt fit to where the caliper and brake pads are. I got all this information from Solid Axle.com or spyntec industries Maybe they missed telling me something. Help would be great cause now Im stuck with all these new parts and somethings naked eye wrong.

if you swapped to chevy rotors and hubs, you will most likely have to use chebby calipers and caliper brackets. BTW there are two different style rotors for our trucks, (2 different offsets) Just my .02.

Your .02 is worth it. Thats what I'm wondering about how to get that done, already put so much into it wondering if searching a junk yard for the original cast iron hub housing and selling off the new housings and rotors since they've never been used just put together to the point where I wasnt informed to well and need more parts.
