6 Lug Rear Discs With 15" Wheels

This set of brackets will allow you to have rear disc brakes on your 6 x 5.5 bolt pattern ’64-’87 GM truck 10 and 12 bolt rear differentials, and be able to run 15" wheels. This rear disc conversion is completely bolt on with one exception. The drum/wheel register will need machined down to approximately 3.06”. I do recommend upgrading to ” wheel studs at this time, but it isn’t absolutely necessary for the installation. The rotors used with these brackets as well as the calipers are easily found at your local auto parts supplier. The basic application for the rotors is '88-'98 K1500 Silverado or Suburban front rotors. The calipers used on this conversion are referred to as the D369 calipers. These are also found on the '88-'98 K1500's as well as the C1500's. A complete parts list with part numbers is included with the brackets.


The cost on this set of brackets with installation hardware is $177.50. Satin black powder coating is an additional $28.00. Shipping within the USA is a flat $13.60. This pricing is always current and up to date. If you are outside of the USA, contact me for a shipping cost. For payments I accept PayPal and money orders. Credit card payments can be made thru PayPal. To place an order, you can send me a PM here on the forum or you can email me at captainfab454@hotmail.com.

Hmm, with these calipers there won't be a parking brake, will there?

Re: 6 Lug Rear Discs With 15" Wheels

This is awesome, I've been torn whether I should just change my front brakes to 5 lug in case I wanted to go to rear discs later on, but now I don't have to worry about it :-D I love the stuff you fab, Captain

Re: 6 Lug Rear Discs With 15" Wheels

I don't currently have a 6 lug rear disc bracket that has an e-brake that will work with 15" wheels. However I do have these if you could run 16" or larger wheels.

Re: 6 Lug Rear Discs With 15" Wheels

As I stated in my thread for the discontinued 6 lug rear discs, I am currently working on another bracket set that will have an e-brake and will work with 15" wheels. There just is not a lot of time with working 70-80 hrs a week. I am currently waiting on some laser cutting for verify the final design.

Re: 6 Lug Rear Discs With 15" Wheels

I'm at a point where I'm ready to undertake this as well Capt. However, I want to be able to run my slotted mags if possible. Patiently awaiting your new design.

Re: 6 Lug Rear Discs With 15" Wheels

I haven't forgot about this. I've just been burried with work, including one big job I am trying to get done. I have the latest laser cutting sitting in the shop, just lacking time to get to it. I should be able later this coming week.

Re: 6 Lug Rear Discs With 15" Wheels

Does the new design used the D52 calipers?

Re: 6 Lug Rear Discs With 15" Wheels

No it will not be using the D52 caliper. The new design will use the smaller Metric caliper commonly used on the '79-'85 Eldorado, Toronado, and Riveria as well as the '82-'91(?) F-bodies.

Sorry for the delay on the new e-brake design guys. I was all ready to verify my final design today and I discovered that my supplier that laser cut my parts, cut the wrong file. They cut the old file instead of the revised file. So I sent them an email today but of course they won't be in until Monday AM. So I'll see on Monday how quick I can get the correct parts.

Re: 6 Lug Rear Discs With 15" Wheels

I am very interested in a set of these brackets. I am ready to buy with cash in hand when the time has come. Hoping to have my truck ready before LSFest. Hope everything goes well with the laser cutter.

Re: 6 Lug Rear Discs With 15" Wheels

I did pickup the laser cutting on Friday, and finally got time to check the fitment today. Everything looks good with the caliper I was using, which was a standard front caliper. I ran out of time to check the fitment with an actual e-brake caliper, I will do that tomorrow. I don't forsee any problems, so I should be able to ship 3 sets of these right away. I will start a for sale thread tomorrow sometime. In the meantime here are some pics.
