Is it a stock ford 9" or a aftermarket floater rear end.
If it is a stock rear end I believe you can use rotors off a newer ford car that had rear disc brakes, if not just use a Rotor hat and use the .810" thick rotors that everyone uses on 9" floater rear ends. then just weld some caliper brackets to the rear end housing and use the small GM calipers.

I don't know what fords had disc rear brakes, that is something you will have to find out at your local parts store.
I still think it would be cheaper and easier to buy the rotor hat and the racing rotors, then buy a caliper mount. all of these parts are made to work with each other and easy to do.
What kind of car are you putting this rear end under-Mid-size Metric, like a Monte Carlo or Grand Prix? What does your rules allow for rear end.

The front rorors off mid 90's-early 2000's Grand Marquis/Crown Vic. work well. You have to drill them out to 5x5 patern. But you will have to do that with any stock rotor you get. I went to the ford dealer and took used ones from the pile and turned them. Yeah I'm cheap!

78-79 lincoln had rear disc 5 on 5. use gm calipers, not the fords the fords only adjust when the e brake is set.

those rotors dont have much back space so when you weld on the caliper bracket yourll have customize it some.

If I remember I welded it on the brg area not the tube of the houseing when useing those rotors.
