Do you have to use the rotors and calipers from the same year as the 14 bolt ? Thanks !
No. What is the underlying question/problem/goal?
Only recently has the 14 bolt been introduced with disks but I don't think you are talking about this option.
You will need to decide on calipers (e-brkae or not is the biggest decision) and then get the backing plates from the people on this site or other vendors.
You can use rotors and calipers from a 70's front Dana 44.
Go to Autozone and tell them you want some rotors, brake pads and calipers from a 1979 3/4 ton Chevrolet 4x4.
79 K20's had Corporate 10 bolts not D44's. I don't think the rotor is much different, but the calipers are and use different fittings (different diameter and/or length banjo bolts). So is it a D44 or 10 bolt caliper he wants? Asking because I would like to know too. Thanks
autozone part number for rotors is 5523 they run around $30.00 each, check out their website. they were the cheapest i found and made in the same place as those other more expensive places.
