    Is there any junkyards near DFW? I need a part, BADLY, I need the dust cover thing that goes behind the brake rotor that has a cut out for the caliper, mine got toasted, and I threw it away, unless someone can tell me how to mount the caliper without it.

    you might try here:

    http://www.car-part.com/ .. I find a lot of good deals on this search

    Also Grand Prairie is the king of dallas scrap yards. There's a pick n pull with a few 1/2 ton front ends in it, and about 20 other wrecking yards in about a 2 mile radius. HTH,

    You can mount the caliper w/o it. I have not taken one off of a 10 bolt, but I see no reason why you couldn't. Many people I wheel w/ don't have them. Why won't the caliper mount up? It should only be held on by the two allen head bolts that go through the caliper and the one screw allen head bolt on the back, correct? Don't have much 10 bolt experience, probably showing my ignorance. To answer your main question, there are many junk yards in the area. I am going axle shopping Thurs., and I could pick one up if you need it.

    Where in Dallad are you located?
    If you are twords the Plano are, there are a couple out twords Wylie and 3 or 4 in Blackland, just outside of Rockwall. Just depends on how far you want to go.
    There are others on 175 in Rylie, off 635. Open the yellow pages and pick one of the many.

    There are a few in Grand Prairie where the Naval base used to be. Can't remember the street name but it's just east of beltline & south of the interstate.

    Dont waste your time in Blackland, you can get it from the dealer cheaper.

    I seriously doubt you can get a pair for less than 20 bucks at a dealer. The price of dealer parts are a joke now a days.

    What I meant was that Blackland is so damn high in there pricing, you could buy it from the dealer cheaper than you could from the two yards there in Blackland.
