Re: Late model Rear disc conv.
Broncomania - can you fab, and weld on caliper mounts? if so, here's a trick you might want to look into
Samurai rotors, and mid 80's Subaru front calipers. the subarus, for some reason, had the p-brakes on the front, and use the same width rotors as the sammys. sammys use a 5 on 5.5 bolt pattern, and 'hat' style rotors, so they'll slip right onto the ends of your existing axle shafts. using the combo, you'd get 11" solid rear disks w/ cable operated p-brakes that should hook right up to your existing cables. I have no idea how the back-spacing will work for ford rims - I think the Sammys run about 2.5" BS, and their 15" rims clear the subaru caliper acceptably.
