Brake bracket kit number 7024475 uses ½” bolts and the bolt pattern is square at 3 3/8” center to center both vertically and horizontally.

The brake kit number 91031945 or the 91031946 both require the inner race to be replaced with the other race included in either kit or also in the basic kit number 7024475. The change properly locates the rotor in the correct location on the spindle for alignment with the caliper. The Chevy bolt pattern rotor is a 73-77 midsize GM and the Ford bolt pattern is a redrilled 73-77 GM to the 4 ½” bolt circle. The outer bearing is the original 73-77 GM with the .750 I.D. If you need the outer bearings and races part number 912TLM11949 and 912TLM11910 would fill the needs. Seal number for replacement is # 912S18562.

Would it be possible to swap the caliper brackets side to side, to mount the calipers ahead of the axle, instead of behind?

Caliper brackets could be mounted so as to put the calipers ahead of the axle. In doing so you must also switch the calipers side to side to keep the bleeder at the top for proper brake bleeding without caliper removal. Stopping ability will not be altered.

Brackets in kit number 7024475 work on the 37-48 Ford spindles or our aftermarket 28-48 spindles. To get the Ford bolt pattern of 5 on 4 ½ we use a GM rotor that is drilled with the Ford bolt pattern. If you have a bearing supplier in your area it may be possible to mix and match the bearings to get the correct offset to align with the calipers.
