confused 9" brake parts, what rotors?

Hey guys

I am having a 9" made up for my XE falcon. It will be standard borg length and have all the brackets welded on that are needed..
The diff guy wants the brake caliper brackets so he can bolt them behind the axles so I don't have to remove the axles.. a couple questions;

-will I have to remove the axles to put on the new rotors? therefore I should also send him the rotors?

-what seriers calipers should i be looking at? XD-E calipers with a kit through them? or new?

-The rotors is what I am unsure of. there are a couple options i guess. I asked the diff guy and he says any rotor will go on, that includes the borg rotors out of XD-E-F's. He suggested the vented type from the XE Borg. This sound correct?
Would this be that same as newer EB etc style rotors? as I have an EB diff sitting spare.

So options are; Reco standard XE rotor or, 2nd hand DBA if avail from wreckers, or some new vented DBA rotors.
MY first option would to get some off the wreckers, XE style and reco them. But how can I tell what ones would be good to reco? how much meat can be shaved from there to make them true? or should I not worry about rust etc and just let the brake pads wear them clean? thats sounds dodgy to me!
Basically I need to decide what is more cost effective, reco'd standards or new DBA's...

need; rotor, caliper and brake bracket.
Bracket to go behind axles so needs to go to diff guy. anything else?

thanks heaps, sorry its long, always is when I have no idea :p

cheers

Re: 9" brake parts, what rotors?

if you are going to the trouble / expence of getting a 9" modified , i think it would be silly not to use NEW rotors for the brakes. you can get new vented , slotted rotors for about $170? each.
by the time that you hunt the wreckers to find something that is usable and have it machined , you end up with a rotor thats thin as and has saved you very little.

what car did your diff / axles come out of ??
you will proberly need to get some rotors that mach your axles.
