    I was woundering if anybody had a scetch or drawing with diminsions for a calliper hangers for a 14 bolt FF to use with GM callipers? I have a waterjet at work and would like to make a couple of sets. Are 3/4 10 bolt callipers the same as a 44? Thanks for all the help.

    buddy of mine welded a set of 1/2 ton caliper brakets/ backers to a 14 bolt. i've seen it a dozen times and it looks pretty straight forward. the rotors are from a 3/4 ton. he has 15 inch wheels, which barely didn't fit around the calipers. he ground the calipers down (i don't wreck-o-mend this) if you are running 16's it'll fit like a glove. i can ask him some questions if you want more info. let me know.
