    I used 1977 3/4 calipers, rotors and pads. I used a weld on caliper bracket that needed to be spaced 3/4" inside the axle flange- gotta make sure the caliper has room to move toward the center of the truck as the pads wear. New rotors are like $24 each. To get the drum and hub separated just get a bfh and beat the studes though. Careful not to mess up the threads. The rotor goes on the reverse of the drum coming off /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
