Discussion in 'The Garage' started by **DONOTDELETE**, Apr 5, 2002.

    how much did you spend? napa wants from 30 to 50 bucks each depending on what size i have! i've already got my pads on and new seals for the drums so i though i'd just do em while i'm in there. plus one is starting to seep a bit. this is just for my work truck so wanted to keep it cheep, but damn, its starting to add up. next brake job will be discs.

    i paid 11 bucks each at autozone...i think napa might be bending you over! /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif at least make em give ya a kiss first...lol. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif
     
  2. the guy at napa said there are two sizes for the wheel cylinders. one is 1 1/16", the other is 1 1/8" and they are not interchangable. the 1 1/8 is 50 bucks each- probably the one i need too! might have to do with the fact that i have the 13" drums and not the smaller ones. what size are yours?- your drums that is/forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Are you sure they didn't look up cylinders for a dual wheel p/u? I looked it up on their web site and they are $12.49. I have the big a$$ed drums and paid about $11.00.

    I would go to another place like Autozone and check. I know they're a bunch of morons, but if you take your old ones there, you can match it with the new part. They should be under $15.

    Jason, you are in luck! I just replaced mine today, bought the wheel cylinders yesterday. I'm doing exactly what you are doing (rebuilding my brakes). I bought mine at Napa for 12.49 each. I priced them at Autozone and Oreilly's and they are all basically around that price. As far as I know, if you have a full-floating 14 bolt, you will have the 13" brakes. I had originally bought them from Oreilly's, but those had seals that were larger than the originals, so I went to Napa and bought theirs. They were a perfect fit. The Oreilly's ones stuck out too much and hit the metal above the cylinders. It's kind of hard to explain, but I can take pics tomorrow if you'd like (I still haven't returned the Oreilly's ones). I also have the part numbers that I can get for you tomorrow as I have the parts laying in my bro's garage. I also just bought new seals and bearings by the way. Let me know if you need any help.

    Oh, and another thing. The local Napa is generally always more expensive than the other local auto parts stores, but they can ALWAYS lower their price. The Napa across town always tries to screw me with a higher price, and when I go to the other Napa, they always quote me a lower price for the exact same part!!! Anyway you look at it though, the cylinders shouldn't be over 15 bucks.

    Just so you know, not all 14ff have the big 13" brakes. 1 tons will but alot of 3/4 tons will not. I have yet to see a 14ff 1 ton that did not have them but they might be out there.
