I'm going to be puting rear disc on my Blazer and I'm going to use the front caliper bracket and 75 eldorado calipers that have thepark brake in the caliper.For rotors I found that front rotors of a (not sure of the year) 99 toyota 4 runner, they are a bit thin but I think they'll work.

I think I have 1 set left but havent got the spacers cut yet.
I will mock mine up this weekend to verify the required spacer thickness.
I think to make anything on this project I would have to charge you $50 a side for bracket and spacer, depending on the spacer thickness I have to get made up.

that set on the bogger rail is missing some metal in a very important spot
the caliper guide pins are not supposed to take the brunt of the braking force
the caliper bracket is supposed to be virtually touching the caliper to take the braking force

bolt on
'weld on' would not require the spacers that double the cost

seems to be more interest in these parts then I thought
it takes a couple of days to get cut parts in my hand after I give the cutter a drawing
the delay right now is that I want to personally verify the spacer thickness required before spending cash
I need to get a 14ff torn down to mock the brackets on
I have a new brackets, rotors, brake lines, and pads, used caddy calipers ready to go on
within a week I will tear into my daily driver to get the numbers I need
I might use DanB's idea and run tube spacers until the cut stuff arrives
I can make tube spacers here in minutes

the caliper looks like a typical chev 1/2-3/4 ton also used on fullsize cars IIRC
the only good thing about that caliper is that it is dirt cheap (like $16 for a rebuilt) and easy to mount
