Question C5 brakes on rear

I've been doing a fair amount of research and decided to put C5 brakes on the front of my '69 and would like to pair that with C5 on the rear. I have a 12 bolt that's been modified with strange rear axles. Does anyone have any information on what this would take?

Everything I've found so far is for a 10 bolt rear end...

Re: C5 brakes on rear

Do you have C-clip axles? Do you want an e-brake? If yes....

The LS1 rear swap is way easier and way cheaper. The brakes are essentially the same as C5 rears. Same rotor diameter and thickness (12 x 1)(but not directional) and the calipers are virtually identical - the main diff being the C5 is pressure cast vs the LS1 being gravity cast.

If you "gotta" have a C5 caliper it will bolt directly to the LS1 abutment, but you might have to mess with the anti rattle spring.

I have the stock GM drum set up with Ford strange axles to elimate the c-clips. I would like to maintain an e-brake also...
