The 99+ E350 rotor is popular for swaps because its machined on the backside to mount outboard of the axle flange/hub. 01-02 Dodge rotor mounts similarly. Both rotors are used with 16" wheels.

I would probably get a generic weld-on bracket for those calipers, and tailor it as needed.

What are you working on? I've not seen or heard of a 9.25 Chry. diff with 8x6.5 bolt patteren axles. Are you trying to convert a Dana 60 to disc brakes?

Some light duty d/w250 trucks used a 9.25 8 lug axle

a NOTE / for people that want disc brake on a 1/2 ton 9 1/4 can use the Chrysler Imperial stuff , the last few years of production they had 9 1/4 disc brake rears BUT the 5 x 5 bolt pattern = l had the rotors redrilled
