Default Ford 9 inch C5 Disc brakes???

Does anyone offer a conversion kit to adapt c5 brakes to the 9"? Its a big bearing new end style. Or maybe even the LS1 brakes? Any info would help!

Default C5 Brakes for 9 inch rear end

Just bought everything for my 9 inch. Google KORE 3. Then call and ask for Tobin. He should square you up.

Ok thanks guys. I just would like to keep c5 brakes all around. i know the C5 rears have the drum parking brake type setup. I may have to adapt the to the Big ford old housing ends.

Ok.. What is the real advantage of weld on/ bolt on brackets. I would really like to retain my parking brake even though I dont really need it. Its an auto. looking at the GM metric calipers with jeep rotors. You use a weld on bracket
