    Advanced auto parts http://www.advanceautoparts.com/ $66.99 each with a FIVE dollar core at the store. shows $10 online. These are LIFETIME warranty also.
    I'll have the passengerside tomorrow. Driverside was not in the local warehouse and it will be mid week for it. They could not get the bracket and springs .
    LH P# is 18-4117
    RH P# is 18-4116
    The master cylinder for that car looks like it would bolt on and may correct some of the problems folks are having with unever braking here is the part number 10-1695
    This part number might be a short hose from caliper to hard line BH36767 that's a rayspestos part number. The list that as rear disc hose. They have another part lsted that I think is the hose to top of axle but the discriptions are vague.

    I checked that out. the only difference I found is that there is a $10 core charger, not a $5. Also, they are unloaded.

    I rather order the loaded ones for $74.99 + $15 core each.

    Too bad I don't have money right now /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I have found a diff. caliper that will work...$119.00 loaded for the set....with an e-brake.
    I have a question about the fit....
    1- rotors= 1.250" wide
    2- caliper= 1.150" max opening
    do you mill off the pads, modify the caliper. What does TMC do to get them to fit? /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Are you saying $60/ea, including the core charge? And like Grim said, what are they from?

    I think (it hurts /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif ) that TSM uses ford rotors and not the chevy ones.

    The newer ElDorado calipers are supposed to be used with 1" thick rotors and I don't think they made these in 8 bolt lug patterns. Definetly do not go modifying things to make these fit. Stopping is far to important to play that game.

    /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gifOk guys, they are F**D calipers from a 1988 (87-89)thunderbird, I have called around to junk yards and they have cars sitting around with them still on the cars....the price I'm hearing from them is $35.00 to $45.00 a set...I've been R&D'ing this for about 1 week and so far so good. I'm putting them on a 14FF and making a hub spacer ring to alow my 6 lug rim to bolt on to the front of the hub. I'll do a write up on the change over for the 6 lug guys and for the 8 lug guys this change over will be very easy.
    The one question that I have, if anyone has the TSM kit is, what part are they changing...the rotors from a 3/4 ton are 1.250" (1-1/4") wide(where the pads clamp on the rotor) and the calipers will max open at 1.200" (1-3/16") so they are eather turning the rotors down (the min on the rotor is 1.190" so you will not be able to resurface them) or milling off the front of the brake pads to open up the space between the pads....
