    Off road unlimited sells a complete kit but its nearly twice what all the other "get the parts yourself" kits out there. Does anyone have any experience with this and is there a reason why other than "they can" charge that much?
    heres their kit (UNDER PARTS SECTION) http://www.offroadunlimited.com/new/custom/custom_inside_index.html
    Its close to 1400 buckos....and I am unsure if their kits uses caddy calipers... from what I glean other kits can be made for less than half of that with minimal parts searching effort
    can the caddy calipers stand up to the truck use..
    is the caddy ebrake reliable? blazers are heavier than caddies by 1-2k pounds I would say and no one seems to fully address this question in their sites

    I used azkickin's kit and it's great /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif. I used GM rotors and calipers. Rotors-$25 each Calipers-$15 each Pads-$12. Azkickin also sells the optional hose kit...that I highly recommend (instead of trying to piece your own together)

    we used az-kickins on chevy4wds, just the brackets, hoses and bolts, used 3/4 ton front rotors and 3/4 ton front calipers...works GREAT
