    The rear D60 that I had (that SUBFAN now has) has 7 holes for backing plate mounting.....a little different than the Furd & Dodge D60's.

    Here is a link to Blackbird's Custom Trucks. They sells a rear disk kit for Chevy D60 rears. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Beast388 is correct. The GM D60 has 7 mounting bolts, and the Ford has 4.

    I ordered one for the Ford housing, but changed my mind and used the GM one instead. I need to get off my but and send them back and get the right one. Let me know if you want to use the GM housing, and I will send my kit back and the pattern for it. I cut the center out of the backing plate, because I knew I could not draw one correctly /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    That way everyone that gets one will have a correct fit /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The Dodge plates mount on the inside of the axle flange so the bottom has to be cut away to allow the plate to slip over the axle and behind the flange. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
