    My buddy saw the disc brake brackets that i got and was wondering if they would work on the back of his 69 chevelle, it has a 12 bolt. i have seen them used on 12 bolts on trucks, but is there any difference?
    Also what rotor would he use? the front rotor or have to find a same bolt pattern car that came with rear disc?
    Any help will be appreciated.

    70's Corvette rotor. Same 5-on-4.75" bolt pattern as the Chevelle and has the same diameter as the K5 rotor.
