    Loaded 76-78 Caddy calipers for a rear disk conversion. Fits TSM/AZ-Kickin/ORD etc. etc. rear disk conversion brackets. Purchased new from TSM. Installed on vehicle but never driven. I've opted to go with some other GM calipers instead.

    I purchased these new from TSM for $300 plus about $15.00 shipping. You can see them here: http://tsmmfg.com/3121.htm

    You can see them on my truck here: http://community.webshots.com/user/douglasgrant in the rear axle project folder

    You can find these cheaper from AutoZone or Kragen for Raybestos or Cardone about $110.00 a piece but, they don't come with levers or springs. I searched everywhere for loaded calipers with springs and levers but gave up and ponied up for the TSM ones even though they were more expensive. I figured I would have to cough up some bucks for the springs and levers anyway, not to mention my time investment searching.

    Selling for $250 for the pair

    I opted to look at another GM caliper that has a sort of bracket built in to it. Or, I may go with a driveline e-brake.

    That's why I went TSM to begin with. Good luck finding just the levers and springs unless you hunt through a wrecking yard and get lucky. I think $250 is reasonable considering you will pay about $220 for a loaded pair from a parts store and then have to go and hunt for the levers and springs. Let's say you find them in a wrecking yard. They will probably zoom you for $10-20 for the parts. You are back up almost to my price.

    I think a junk yard is going to be your only source.

    If these are indeed the ones that need to be used on the 14BFF Rear Disk conversion, I will offer you $200.00 shipped to my door. The TSM site says you need the 3120 caliper, but the 3121 is all I see?

    Sent you a reply. BigOrange90Jimmy is first up, and you are swinging in the on deck circle. If he backs out, you get them.

    I have two offers for $250 and I will pay shipping (within reason). These are the 3121. The 3120 is another GM caliper that I think they modified. You can use either caliper on the same brackets. I had these on AZ-Kickin brackets. They will fit TSM, AZ-Kickin, ORD, Shakerbuilt, or any other bracket made for the rear disk conversion.
