I want to make sure I'm following correctly.
Sterling 10.5" from a SD? How about an Excursion too?
SD hubs? Any year or specific to some?
E series rotors? What years and can it be 250 or 350?
What for calipers, p brake, and pads?

Yes or a excursion. Anything from 99-04. I'm not a fan of the 99 axles because one caliper is front facing on the drivers side and rear facing on the pass side. Also it is a different housing compared to the 2000-2004. They use both rear facing calipers. But it's all preference. E rotors can be used from 98 or so up. I got mine from a 05 axle. If you went to a parts house and asked for a 2000 E rear rotor you would get the correct one. Semi or full float don't make a difference. Calipers, parking and pads all SD

If you're going ahead and drilling the rotors, why can't you just use the 9/16" stud?

He didn't drill the rotors, just the hubs. And the 9/16 studs would be too big for the wheels and lug nuts.

If it isn't under warranty, I'll fix it myself.

As you can see in the picture, the very outside edge is the factory SD knurl.

Looks great! Keep the pics coming. Just curious though, if it worked well to just drill new holes and you don't think strength is a concern, why bother with this approach?

Just cause this was was in the works months ago. Having the studs made took longer than expected. And I just wanted to see if my idea would work.
