    I'm looking at these and was wondering if anyone else has done this. What rotors and calipers did you use?

    lots have done it, myself included.../forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gifit is super easy...just use the brackets, front rotors off a 3/4-ton chevy (i just told the parts guy an 1984 3/4-ton) and either the same vintage chevy front calipers if you don't want a parking brake or if you wish to retain parking brake, rear calipers from a 1976-1978 Caddy Eldorado, although these calipers are easily triple the price of std. chevy front calipers... /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    I'm the same way. I should be getting my brackets and hose kit from a-tron on friday. So unless something happens, I'll be doing mine this weekend also /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yes, relatively easy kit to install. I used 3/4 ton rotors and 76 El Dorado calipers but have yet to connect the E-Brake. Braking is great, a very worthwhile modification which ranks high in my book of Chevy 4x4 add-ons.

    I will be using rotors from a 76 3/4 ton 4x4. I have noticed the price of the calipers. I got a price of $110 + an $80 core for the Cadillac calipers but I got lucky and found a good used set for $35 each. Will probably get them tomorrow.
