Requires single steel wheel 15" with a maximum 4" back spacing. For single rear wheel axles
Like I said, they are different! The early full float D60 ford axles used different brakes and axle flanges therefore they need a different disc brake setup for the newer ones. These are for the years 77-84 but may work on some newer model D60's. We have noticed the flange diameter is different on certain models that does not allow the bracket to fit over (Brackets radiused for 3 15/16"). Double check your 4 bolt flange pattern as we have seen some old runs used on the newer Ford. If the bolt spacing is same horizontally as it is vertically then you want the 76 and older kit
They are just like all of our Disc Brake Brackets in that they are 3/8" thick! They use the 73-87 Chevy 3/4 Ton 4x4 Front Rotors & Calipers but you may have to remove 1/10" of the inside diameter of the throat of the rotor. It was the best choice of Rotor and any brake shop should be able to do it for $20.
*NOTE* Double check your wheel stud diameter and length. Dormin #610-180 usually work. Studs should drop freely into the rotor. DO NOT press studs into the rotor. If your hub has too large of studs you will need to drill the rotors to accept them. Be sure to have minimum 5/8" lug nut thread engagement

Questions and Answers
James on -- Asked:
Will these brackets work on a 1984 c10 2x4?
Only if you swapped in a 77-84 Ford D60 into it
Rob M. on -- Asked:
Would like to use a caliper with park brake. Do you know of anything that will work with your brackets.
1976-77 Cadillac El Dorado rear calipers will bolt to our brackets and have the parking brake capability.
We are coming out with our own parking brake calipers that should be available this summer.

Hi. I am interested in converting my back drums to disc on my 78 Ford F250 Ranger. Is it worth it? And what type of caliper does it take so I can have an ebrake since the truck is a 4 speed 4×4 drive. Your response is appreciated. Thanks.
As long as you have the appropriate master, booster, proportioning valve combo it will be a night and day difference. Every vehicle set up is a little different so your stock components may be ok. For parking brake you would need 76-77 Cadillac El Dorado rear calipers or similar. 78 and newer have a smaller mounting span and will not bolt up
