View Full Version : Rear disc swap

04-14-2004, 08:23 PM
I just put a new (used) complete rear end into one of our used trucks (2000 GMC 1/2ton 4x4) at work and may be able to take the old one home (someone blew apart the carrier). I am wondering if anyone has used these caliper/caliper mounts/rotors on an older Chevy rear end? I've got an '80 1/2 ton and of course immediately thought it would be cool to have rear discs!

Back in the auto-wrecking days we tried this on a '95 rear end. IIRC, the backing plate flange was a different pattern, and the spacing between it and the axle flange was different.

Might be better to install an Auburn or Detroit, move the perches, and call it done. Main weak point is the Gov-Lock.
