    ok, decided to do the disk breaks on my 14 bolt ff " I vurrently have empy drums /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif" so I call the big 3 to check prices on the rotors for a 73 3/4 4x4

    Napa 41.00 for imported
    71 for made in /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    Checker 39.00 for imported

    Auto Zone 25.00 for imported /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif


    So I asked him 3 times, "are you sure" he checks an loan and behold I feel lucky today

    Did you check with A-TRON? I think his handle is acp45 or something similar. He is down in Tucson and offers a kit. He has a real hitech machine shop and I think his kits were priced right.

    Just an FYI

    I just ordered a set of the disc brake brackets from A-Tron, and they were in the neighborhood of 80-85 for the set. I have had a set made by fellow CK5er DERBINATOR, and I think they were $90 shipped or something like that. Everyone seems happy with the A-Tron stuff, and I am really impressed with DERBINATOR's parts. It's a toss-up, but I am sure you will be happy either way. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Autozone has everything cheaper. Some of there parts though are just that cheap. I know I personally hate to go to Autozone in Phoenix, because I don't speak spanish, so it is hard to get help. I personally pay the extra money and go to Checker or Napa so I don't have to deal with Autozone.

    The only thing I go to Autozone for is bearings and races. They carry Timken, and they have really good prices on them. I paid double the Autozone price for bearings from Napa.

    check out chaz, I think his handle is chaz88k5 or something like that, he has some sweet brackets with spacers for 70 bucks shipped to your door.
