This disc brake kit is for 6 Lugers right? If so has anyone heard what vehicle the rotors are from?

Scratch the trailblazer idea. They're metric.

just trying to figure out what rotor the 6 lug rear is using
so it can be adapted to the front using a bracket similar to
the ones M1dadio is making.

I have rear disc brakes on my 2nd Gen. Modified from '85 - '90 Cadillac Edrado/Toronado . . work GREAT. . M1D installed a complete Firebird (??) disc brake rear end.

This is a page I put together, so I could remember what I did . . . the page and its contents are not meant to be instructional,or recommendations - - - just a record for me. Most everything on the page is based in the work & experiences of others.

BTW - - - the system works GREAT . . . stops straight. Under normal braking, the pedal pressure is about the same ad the 4 wheel drum was. Under hard braking the pedal pressure requires more leg, but stops on a dime!!!

http://www.angelfire.com/wv/joyrde/vanstuff/brakes/VanDiscBrakes1.html


For the complete 4 wheel disc I used all new parts. As for difficulty, brakes are not something that should be undertaken by folks who are not properly trained. I am a retired ASE Master Tech, with 45 years of experience. As for cost, with the machine work, I have close to $1,000.00 in the complete set-up.

Yes rear disc brake kits have been availible for 10 bolt and 12 bolt rear ends forever.

Just a reminder, many of us allready know. You get what you pay for when it comes to the one kit fits all made in china disc brake kits. Look into the source of the kits components before you buy.

Vanner68 has discovered my brackets fit onto to G20 spindles. He is currently working on finding a rotor and caliper set up that will work together for the G20. I don't know where hes at with it and I don't know anything else about the G20
