Will new S10 rear axle calipers fit stock bracket?

I'm looking for info to create my own rear disk set up on my jeep. I've been to several websites that sell brackets for mounting the calipers to the axle tube. Does anybody know the dimension of the two "slide bolts" for the rear calipers? I'm trying to see if there is a current bracket that might bolt to the new calipers.

Thanks in advance.

Your question is kinda vauge. I just did a rear disc swap on my D60 and I used all the rotors caliper and slide bolts from a 82 K20 chevy front,(new parts from Autozone) used AA-MFG weld on caliper brackets, and used el camino front soft lines to the caliper. I think you need to figure out what you are going to use for a caliper, what rear axle are you running? how are you mounting said caliper?

Well it's only vague because I don't know what I'm doing....... yet.

I've got the AMC20 rear axle, and I'm hoping to use the small calipers from a newer S10/Jimmy (or explorer). I currently have the GM booster/master cylinder from an S10 on my jeep. I was looking at the brackets supplied by AA manufacturing, but they only state that they'll fit the CHEVY front calipers. These use a lot of fluid, so I was wanting to go with the newer smaller calipers.

I'm gonna be using suzuki samurai rotors because they have the same bolt pattern as my jeep. I'll probably have to have my axles machined to fit inside the "hat" of the rotors.
