    I'm cheap. Period. I wanna do this conversion on my '74 Jimmy. What specific rotors do I need and can I use the factory caliper backing plate off any K10 with some modifications to it?

    I am, and it's been awhile but If I recall they are regular 10bolt front rotors,
    and you have to drill the axle flange out for the longer studs (which is a pain), I used A-tron brakets, but again if I remember correctly you can use later style backing plates, the ones that are half sheet metal, and 3/4 inch long stand offs

    Also there was a write up long ago about this I think Grimmy did it and it was in the members section, but since I don't have a membership right now I can't tell you if it is still there or not

    Ive got some brand new 10 bolt 6 lug rotors, but I left them in the barn uncovered and what not. So, you could turn them and use them probably. Not sure how to ship them but they are yours for like $20. I need to set up a PayPal account.
