3/4-ton is an 8-lug. '66 was the last year for 6-lug. You must be talking about a 3/4-ton '70 Chevy, yeah?

NO i was thinking of for a 1991 Chevrolet Truck C2500 3/4ton P/U 2WD the part number is 5572 and the price is $63.99
i went to autozone andc looked at a 1973 chevy and the 1991 chevy Brake Rotor thet use the same Wheel Bearing part number    15103S  so it should work .i am going to put the 1973 disc break on the 1970 and the swap out the 1991 rotor so i can keep my 6 lug wheel and have disc breaks

I know this is an old post. I thought the same thing. 1991 C2500 or 3/4 ton GVW 7800 is 6 lug and the bearings will all work, in fact the rotor fits on perfect............but the rotor sets more outboard, the inner brake pad will not go out far enough to hit the rotor and there is no room to even put on the outer brake pad. I tried it does not work.
