    Did a search and more info is needed as well as a write up as someone else mentioned earlier. Whoi has done it and what all do ya need to do it? So far the cheapest place for brackets is 55 bucks and need to know the rest thats involved, I just got my 14 bolt ff today. And since the brakes are in a box all mixed up might as well swich /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    <font color="green"> Let's see...

    Derbinator brackets - $100
    Calipers - I had a set, but about $20 each for non e-brake ones
    Rotors - $36 each
    Short rubber brake lines - $18 each, I posted a part number a while back, you can probably find it if you do a search.
    New hard lines - $8
    Being able to actually stop this beast - Priceless. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Total cost - $238, I paid about $198 out of pocket. I could have done it for less, but I opted for new parts. Going with the e-brake calipers will add around $200 to the price, plus whatever the e-brake cables cost.

    if you want a e brake or need one it will be 78 dollars for the 78 cadi calipers apiece 15 dollars for pads and i think inline tube makes custom ebrake cables for whatever you need.i have to call them and check price still.then the same for what everyone else said.

    The brake pads look awfully thin. Did you have to cut down pads to fit over rotor? Would these calipers fit the Atron brackets?

    Our brackets are designed to be used with either the GM or Cadillac calipers and rotors.

    14-bolt FF Drum Rebuild

    I spent about $100 getting the drums turned, new seals, all new hardware &amp; springs, new shoes, etc. But this was w/ NAPA &amp; I'll get $25 (now down to $75 total) core on the old 13x2.5 pads.
    Thanks!

    I bout my brackets for $55
    Caddilac Calipers for $22 each (junkyard - lucky find, freshly rebuilt)
    3/4 ton front rotors $30 each
    Used my Dana60 rubber brake lines (had extended for the front already)
    New hard brake lines on the axle (just because) $15

    So about $174. I spent more on all of it at the time becuase I wanted to replace all the bearings and seals while I had it apart. I don't regret it at all!
