    3/4 ton D44 rotors on my 14 bolt.

    E-brake calipers are 76-77 Eldorado rear calipers.

    I used 73-87 4wd front rotors and calipers. No Ebrake though: those Eldorado calipers are pricey! lol

    At some point the switched from a 10 mm banjo bolt to a 7/16" or maybe the other way around, you just need to know which caliper your getting and get the right size hose and banjo to go with it! I believe it was around 1981 that they switched but don't quote me on that!

    HAh, OK read the title dummy and now go to bed!

    Disregard entire statement. Rotor don't have banjo bolts or brakelines.

    I thought it was 76-78 eldarodo calipers that work? I found a set of '78 calipers locally from an eldorado and I was all excited, will these work?
    Oh and sorry for the highjack, I also used 3/4ton 4x4 front rotors.
