    I went to Advance Auto parts and bought brand new ones for $24 apiece! I just specified front disc's for a '78 3/4 ton 4x4 and they had them in stock.

    MRChevy4x4 is right. You need the rotor and caliper from a 3/4 ton chevy 4x4.

    And let me just add that I am very pleased with Derbinators brackets! They are top notch and I would recommend them to anyone! In fact I just did this evening. I think I have my neighbor sold on putting a set on his 1 ton van. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    yep. 77 K20 rotors and calipers for me. $23 for each rotor, and $11 for each caliper. Cant beat that!

    derb's brackets are the bomb. If anyone wants to see a pic let me know. they turned out great

    While we're on the subject....once you get the rotors pressed onto the hubs, take them to a shop and have them 'turned'. I bought a brand new set of rotors and was AMAZED at how non-flat they were straight from the factory!

    Scott4x4 turned them for me at his shop (nice guy!) and said the braking would have been horrible if I had skipped this step.....

    FYI

    Where does one get the Brackets?

    Am I correct to think these are for a 14ff?

    Will they work on a 14sf?

    TIA

    Derbinator, on here, sells the brackets.

    Yes they're for a 14 FF.

    No you can't use them on a 14 bolt SF.

    Now I have a question. Supposedly 77 and later D44s and 10 bolts use the same size wheel bearings for 3/4 and 1/2 ton. Does that mean that you could use 1/2 ton rear rotors if you got some special caliper brackets that hold the caliper lower? There isn't that much difference in the diameter of 1/2 and 3/4 ton rotors, so the brackets would have to maybe have the holes moved down 1/4" and you could use 1/2 ton stuff, right? Or for some reason am I missing something all together?

    What I'm thinking is here--I could keep my front end 6 lug and, if I'm going to do rear discs anyway, convert a 14 FF to 6 lug with disc brakes and I wouldn't have to grind up front at all and I could even get aluminum wheels one day if I wanted.

    It won't work because you are still using the 8 lug hubs from the 14FF. So, unless you figured out a way to convert the 8 lug hubs to 6 lug it wouldn't work. Nice thought though. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Ahh--no wonder you guys were only talking about 3/4 ton rotors and not hub/rotor assemblies. Worth asking anyway.

    I might as well stay 8 lug. I kinda like it that way anyway.
