Question Rear Disc Brake help!

i'm trying to do a rear brake job. it's got a disc conversion on the 10 bolt. i had no idea what the brakes came off of. after spending an hour in O'Rilley's, we figured out the calipers are from a 1984-1986 Ford Mustang SVO. but, the rotors are 6-lug.... and we have no idea what they could be from. anybody know what had 6-lug rear disc??? all i can think of is '99 and up chevies (drum e-brake inside rotor), Nissan, Toyota, and newer Fords.... the people at O'Rilley's looked at all the rotors they had in stock, and couldn't match anything. any ideas?

i bet it's an 88-98 chevy 4wd front rotor. most rotors have the part # stamped on them.

Yeah dont get caught up thinking its a rear rotor. Unless it is machined on the inside also like the newer style parking brakes it is most likely a front. Not to many vehicles with a 6 lug pattern have a LARGE rear rotor. I bet them tang calipers got an ebrake built into them dont they?

If you feel froggy you could give Randy at www.blackbirdscustomtrucks.com a call or email.
He has a big collection of books for rotors.

just a heads up to the moderators. I am not trying to sell items just giving information.
