    Jeff, If the inside section of the caliper measures 2.5" across and has the e-brake shaft on the inside/backside then you have the correct ones. The newer ones are designed for thinner rotors. Bill

    The fleetwood and seville caliper castings are the same as the eldorado castings but the piston is different. To measure only the opening of the casting won't tell you anything. You need to measure the opening between the piston and the caliper and make sure it will clear the larger rotor as you stated.
