    Can anybody ID which caddy calipers these are?

    I am looking to do a disk swap on a D70 I have, and I am wondering if these are the 76-78 eldorado calipers. Thanks for your help.

    What is the bolt spacing? From the looks i would have to say either fleetwood or seville and not the correct ones for a rear disc conversion.

    I know they don't look like my eldo calipers. In the caliper on the left, on the end of the spring that big square thing with the hole in it....never saw those on any eldo calipers.

    Jeff, since we have a decent pic right here those are the springs and brackets i've modified to fit on my eldo calipers. The "thing" with the hole is the bracket that holds the cable housing then the cable itself goes through and attaches to the arm. The reason i know that at least the brackets and springs are from a fleetwood and seville is because that is what i took mine off of.
