    Has anyone used the rear disk setup off a 1991-2001 chevy truck on either a 12 bolt rear axle or a dana 60. I currently have a 12 bolt but am thinking about converting to a 60. Does anyone know if this setup will bolt on to either or both. (i can get the complete setup (backing plates, roters, cailipers etc) and am trying to decide whether it will work with my current 12 bolt or what i plan on eventually using (the dana 60) please let me know what i need to do to use this setup.

    thanks

    Get me a picture of the axle flange on the new 1/2 tons, and I will compare them to at least my 10 bolt. I *believe* for the most part (perhaps metric/standard differences) that the 10/12 bolt brakes can be swapped. Could be wrong, but I'd sure like to use stock GM disk brake stuff on my 10 bolts if possible, just can't get the axle flange pattern for the newer trucks

    Why insist on counting when the ring gear has the tooth counts stamped in?

    The brake setup of 10 and 12 bolts are the same. You can interchage the backing plates with no problem.
