Has anyone done a DIY rear disc setup on a sterlin 10.25 rear axle? Im trying to fab up something. Im just wondering what calipers would work best. thanks

I actually already have van rotors, i figured it out and i didnt read it off the web. Being a tech, i realized that for some reason ford stuck with the standard lug pattern on the vans, so i pulled the backing plate off my rear axle and the van rotors do fit perfect. Now me and a friend are fabing up some caliper brackets for the gm calipers. So dont say you came up with the idea. It wasnt hard to figure out that the van rotors fit.Traveler said:The rotors from a E350 single rear wheel can will slip over the hub, the '78 caddy calipers have the biggest piston with an E brake provision.
I was actually the one that came up with the van rotor idea.

I didnt want to come off as an A$$hole, sorry about that. I was just stating that i did find that the van rotors worked too.Traveler said:Geez, don't fly off the handle or anything, but crap when I realized the same thing you did, and then posted it up. All the sudden people all over the internet are having this great idea.
