yes they will if you want to send them to me so I can do the machine work needed to mount the bracket or I have NEW already machined Mcgaughys spindles that I can provide.

No problem on the Hybrid Brackets, If people were interested I would be more then happy to make some.

Looks like I may have to go back to big wheels on my truck just to have a test mule.
So can I get this setup? I got your PM

Re: Anyone want Corvette Brakes for their C10?

Does the location of the wheel mounting surface change compared to the stock 73-87 disc brake with this C5 set up? I ask because of the hub you use.

Thanks,

Thanks,
I will assemble a spindle with the regular rotor and compare. Give me a few days and I'll get back to you.

Re: Anyone want Corvette Brakes for their C10?

This kit looks to be exactly what I am looking to do on my '76 2wd Blazer. I just ordered McGaughy drop spindles for it yesterday . I hadn't seen this thread yet. If I had, I would have just ordered your "hybrid" ones. Put me on the list of folks who are interested.

The fronts look great matching rear with a parking brake would be nice.

I have designed a C5/6 rear disc conversion for the 10/12 bolt rears. 2 More sets left at 160 shipped then the remaining 5 at 180 shipped. All hardware included. check out the thread:

http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=415021






also upgradeable to the z06 brakes too..

I myself am waiting to upgrade the fronts to your kit this will compliment my rears
