    Is there a difference between the stock front 3/4ton disc calipers on the 2wd vs 4wd rigs?

    Jeff, I believe the space between the pads for the rotor is thicker or larger for the 3/4 ton rotors.

    I understand the thickness issue between the 1/2ton and the 3/4ton, but what about using the front calipers off of a 2wd rig? Are they the same ones as the 4wd calipers?

    Look up calipers for both rigs at www.autozone.com and see if they take the same part number. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Sean took the Raybestos parts book home with him today and is going to look up the part numbers.
