6 lug Bolt Pattern, Disk Brakes. 14 bolt

Ok I have a 1/2 tone Burban for my tow vehicle. THe rear axle has a made whine on Accel and i dont' feel liek dropping the cash into a 12 bolt.

So i can get a 6 lug 14 bolt for 75$ with no spider gears and drums. I will be doing a complete re-build. Since i hate Drums i wana go to disks. I'v done a swap before making my own brakes.

My question is I'm thinking about using the rotos from a F150 (rear, with internal drum style e-brake) and then the 1 ton calipers and backing plate.

Is the Ford 6 lug bolt pattern the same as the chevy? Does anyone knwo the e-brake drum dims?

Don't waste your money on that axle. Put a full floating 14 bolt in and convert it to 6 lug if you must remain 6 lug. Trailer towing vehicles should NOT have semi floating axles IMO.

Is it a FF 14bolt? Good.
The bolt pattern 6 in 5.5, the same for everybody.

You have to love all the mis information here. The 6 lug Ford pattern is different from the 6 on 5.5 of years past. The Ford is 6 on 135mm. To think some poor soul would have shelled out $20 for that and been pissed when they got the new wheels they ordered.

They did it again!!!!
What is the problem with this guys?!!!
They have a fetiche with the bolt patterns, first was the fiasco with the F250 light duty, late 90's when they "introduced" the 7 lug pattern, lasted about 2 years. At the same time the changed their 8 lug patern from 6.5" wich is about 165mm, to 170mm.
And now this..!!!!

Wow, you get pretty bent out of shape about lug patterns don't you? It gets worse. You do know they make tires in different sizes, don't you?

The SF 14 bolt is known for eating spider gears. Chances are the carrier is also shot (excess wear around the spider gears). Check it carefully before you spend money on the rest of the axle.

If you do keep the 6 lug 14 bolt, another option (which is on my Waggy D44 rear) is to use Chebby 80s 1/2 ton front rotors & Caddy Eldo rear calipers (has parking brake cables).

EDIT: I have regular calipers not Caddy.
