I am trying to buy new brake calipers and keep finding two different types. 1 type seems to be two piston with one piston on each side. The other is a four piston with two pistons on each side. The two piston has two large pistons and the four piston has four smaller pistons. I don't have the truck infront of me to be able to look at for a few weeks, but I'm still trying to order parts. Any insight?
after rebuilding my front end and upgrading to V-6 Calipers and LC vented Rotors I can tell you the increased stopping power is awesome. Been driving my '81 the last couple of weeks after not driving it for almost a year...It is a night and day difference, improving your brakes is one of the best investments on these old trucks...
I would like to put disk brakes in the back also. Since I am keeping this one stock, do I really need them? It's not like my Mustang where the more brake you have the better. But it seems that if I upgrade the front I should upgrade the back.
