    I did some searching and couldnt find a good comparison.

    I swapped my axles today. The donor vehicle was a 78 3/4 ton truck. Everything was fine til I drove it and found one of my front calipers were seized. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif I was wondering if one of my original 91 calipers would work from my stock 6 lug axle?

    It looks awesome with the new 35" SSR's on it but the brakes are kinda a drag at this point lol

    When i put 3/4 under my 91 sub, i didn't even crack open the front brake sytem. Used the existing calipers on the donor axle rotors. (less bleeding that way too! but probably not an issue on yours @ this point...)
