    How much did you guys pay for dually Rotor's in the front

    I called autozone and they are like 99 bucks a pop

    wtf i don't want to spend that much on rotors any better places to find them ?

    are single wheel rotors the same price?

    also as far as calipers goes does it matter if it is drw?

    The SRW and DRW rotors are the same, only the hubs are different. The price is just for the rotors. You would need to remove the hub and install it on the new rotors. Dont know an actual price, but that sounds about right for this application.

    GMPartsdirect seems to be the ceapest for SRW hub/rotor assembly around. I paid $114.72 each. But they make the money back on shipping and handling ($80.00). Part # is 15635530.

    NO. DRW use bolts to bolt the rotor to the hub. SRW rotors use the wheel studs and are pressed from the back of the rotor to the hub.

    That is correct. that means drw have smaller diameter holes than srw. thats why when switching from drw to srw you can use your stock rotors by drilling them out. i got loaded calipers for 50 a piece at napa. they wanted like 60 a pop for rotors.

    Yeah, I didnt think about the stud sizes. I just matched up the rotor sizes when I had them side by side. I thought they were the same. My bad.

    You think $99 a piece is expensive, just wait until you have to buy a set of rear drums. You will be looking at close to $150 a piece (with tax and every thing).

    that my friend is why you do a rear disk swap



    i think i got
    60 in for brackets
    30 a pop for rotors times x2
    26 a pop for calipers x2
    then hoses not sure
    and 31 for pads alot cheaper in the long run and i had cores for calipers so no charge

    because it was so much easier to do...project wise. I already had all new wheel cylinders and brake shoe hardware from a recent rear brake job. All I needed to make the rear brakes tits, was to buy a quality set of rear shoes, some new drums, and slap it on.
