    I just got a dana 60 front axle for my blazer and am beginning to take it apart to rebuild and paint.

    I am having trouble getting the calipers off. I saw a rectangular plate with a allen head bolt in it at the bottom of the caliper. I removed the bolt but can not remove the plate. It is probably just rusted or maybe I am missing something, I have banged on the caliper and it will not budge.

    Please help. :crazy:

    Thanks
    Rob

    And then pound it in there from the side, while you push the caliper up a little bit..

    The caliper pin is shaped like..

    ----^-----^------

    and the first slot will line up for the bolt to go in the hole.

    Good luck.
