3/4 TON and Geared

Got my 14bff in and gawd its beefy.
Its open for now, soon ill throw in a detroit
Im running 5.13 yukon gears, that i finally got setup by myself
Disk Brakes, with caddys.

All i have left to do is secure the brakelines, hookup the e-brake lines
then the rear is done.

Then i gotta regear and convert the front to 8 lugg.






I also braced my boxxx



Maby i can get down to BWMRA sometime.

Nice work on the rear discs. I hear the springs and e-brake cables are hard to find . . .

Looks GREAT!!!!! Like X said, where did you get your springs for the e-brake setup? I need some for the rear on my 14bolt, have the levers just need the springs.

i got my levars and springs attached to some junkyard calipers, took them off and used the calipers as cores.

i used car-part.com to find a junkyard that had the caddys

What year caddys did you use?

How much did you pay?

I have everything else, just need to get calpiers.........

One last question....

What is the mounting spacing between the two bolts that mount the caliper to the brackets. Mine is 7", but all of the caddy calipers I look at are 5 1/4".

I really think I have the wrong year, hence the aforementioned question.



Thanks!!!!

K5FREAK, could you tell me the exact year and model you used, front or back.


Greywolf, no offense, but I keep getting the wrong info, and "76-78 caddi" does not tell me much.......was it a seville, eldorado, front, back........follow me...

Thanks anyways......
