Eldorado caliper replacement?
Trying to get a quick/cheap set of calipers to replace my Eldorados until I can rebuild them. I have the later Eldorados with the 10mm brake line and 5.5" mounting pin seperation. Have found conflicting info and tried local parts stores but in-stock is very limited to look at. Can anyone confirm which chevy fronts without the ebrake will work for now?
After going through some other sites and more trial and error at the parts store I ended up with early 80's Camaro calipers. They bolts are the correct spread for the bracket and fit with the rotor thickness and Banjos. I did have to grind down the calipers (have three bosses not on the caddy) and the bracket corners slightly for clearance. The other issue I ran into was the calipers capture the banjo fitting so it points right at the axle which required new fittings or lines for me but they were 15yrs old and bashed on so I replaced them.
