    I got slapped with a 80 dollar core charge for my new calipers (14bff disc conversion) :angry1: Is that what they usually charge?? Does anyone have any calipers they can donate so I can get my refund!?! :D

    If you got the caddy calipers that is about what they cost, if you just got the normal 3/4 ton fronts then you got screwed :)

    I paid $17.00 each for my 10 bolt cores. I had some old calipers from a 2 wheel drive truck that I stuck back in the box and brought in for my core. They don't know what's in the box, just stick any caliper in there. :D

    Maybe go to a junkyard and see if you can get some cheap and then use 'em for your core. $80 is a lot of money.

    Call around to different parts stores. AutoZone was really high on their core charge, but O'Reilly's was just a few dollars for the same caliper.
