Dana 60 caliper bracket ?

I'm putting the 3/4 ton dana 44 rotors and calipers on my front 60. I've found lots of caliper brackets to use with the 5 and 6 lug rotors but no luck finding them that fit the 8 lug rotors. The 8 lug rotors are 1/2 bigger than the others so the caliper bracket needs to be 1/4 inch taller. Does anyone know who makes these?

Mine were custom made for my by www.metalfusionfab.com, but I believe I have seen some up for sale by a guy on eBay the last few months... Good luck

Thanks for the info. I didn't see any on the metal fusion website but I'll call them tomorrow.

turn your rotors down to fit?

that would be an option, but the hat in the middle is larger diameter also to allow for the larger bolt pattern so I don't think the caliper and pads would clear it. Maybe with some work. I'll check it out tomorrow. Thanks for the idea

Anyone else? At this point I'm going to try turning down the rotors like HFF said.

i have them in the works.

you are correct the 8 lug rotors are to deep for the straight type brackets.

will post up when they are complete.

thank you
