    When i bought my truck it already had a rear disc conversion. The passenger side caliper is shot and any leads as to what it most likely is would be great. We all know how hard it is to go to a parts house and say just give me one of these. They always want to know what its off of. I know there is no way yall can tell me for sure but any leads would sure help. Thanks alot

    If it uses an emergency brake then it would be a 76-78 caddy eldorado caliper. If there is no emergency brake then it is either a D44 or 10 bolt caliper from a 4x4 truck. The only difference between the D44 and 10 bolt caliper is the brake banjo bolt size and or fitting size.

    Check the banjo bolt.

    If it is a 3/8" bolt, it's the 10 bolt caliper.

    If it is the 7/16" bolt, it's the D44 caliper.

    It is more than likely a 1/2 ton chevy caliper. Just take it off and put it on the counter. Have your parts man match it up by giving him some possibilities. I would repace both sides at one time.

    It can also be a 3/4 ton caliper. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    1/2 and 3/4 ton calipers are the exact same part number if they are either the 10B or D44.

    Ok thanks alot guys. It ended up being the same as a 75 1/2 ton which i assume is a 44. Each caliper was $10 so for both calipers all new pads and a big ol jug of fluid it was under $50. Thanks again.

    <font color=blue>Does anyone know what size the banjo bolt on the 76-78 Eldorado calipers is? This is what I'm running now but I want to switch to non-ebrake calipers. I have a pair of 10 bolt and D44 calipers, which ones will work with the flex hoses I have now?

    Don't know what the Eldo calipers use but the 2 sizes on chevy calipers are 7/16" early caliper, 10mm later caliper. '73- '78 1/2 used 7/16" banjo bot. '79- '86 1/2 used 10mm banjo bolt.
