I have a 1972 C10 with power disc up front

I am looking for some info regarding changing out the rotors from 5x5 to 5x4.75
Don't wanna have to buy a kit if there are options for just changing out the rotors
Anyone have suggestions? I gave already changed out to a 4.10 rear end with 4.10 posi which is 5x4.75

Heard about possible van rotors work but not sure.

Thanks for any help

You might be able to use full size Passenger car/Corvette rotors, up to around 1990 (Corvette to '82). No guarantee that they will work, but the full size cars did share bearings and rotors with the 1/2 tons, particularly the Police and Taxi variants. Vans used the same 5x5 bolt pattern as the trucks, as do later full size Passenger.

Should be a machine shop near you that can just drill a 4.75 pattern onto your hub/rotor. Easy to do when staying with the same number of lug bolts, not so easy when going from 6 to 5, 4-5, etc. We do our own but I think the going price would be around $50 a pair. Check with Moser in Portland, IN, I know they do axles so maybe hubs also.
