    Hey Guys,

    Please help me. The speedshop which did my regearing said the calipers should be replaced. They were a little tight and the pistons appeared almost all the way out. They definitely have some mileage on them. I may try and bleed them and see what happens, but I've been trying to see how much new calipers would cost. If I go to www.advanceautoparts.com, vehicle: 83 K30 Chevrolet Pickup, Brake Caliper, I come up with 28 different caliper options ranging from $39.48 to $187.77 apiece. What gives?

    Does anyone know the GM Part # for Dana 60 Calipers?
    Are there different piston sizes? If so, which one is best?
    What should I pay for new/reman calipers? I'd like to get through www.gmpartsdirect.com.

    Thanks!

    Manny

    Yes, I searched, but this specific information was not listed.

    C'mon guys, I know this seems like a stupid question, but for real. I don't want to spend 200.00 per side if I can help it.

    Kragen has bendix calipers (the factory caliper) for $63 loaded. Those are the ones you need. There are cheaper reman calipers but the bendix are factory.

    You want part number 154166 and 154167 or 164166 and 164167.

    I saw what Kragen's had. Are those GM numbers or Bendix? Or is that the same?

    Thanks,
