    Off Road Unlimited used to offer stock plates with their rear disc kits. They used the '81 and newer plates.

    I wouldn't use those plates in the pic because theres not enough material around the mounting flange to the 14FF. Get some '77 and newer plates.

    You will still need a spacer made to fit those plates to the flange. Somewhere in the range of 1.25" thick. This is in order to use the stock GM 3/4 ton rotor.

    I do wish someone offered a backing plate style conversion though. Sure does make a brake dust mess.

    If I could get spacers made, and buy new plates, would there be enough interest to buy them? They won't be cheap like most guys make them from scratch, but at least they will contain some GM parts, namely the backing plates.
