Just as the title says. Looking for both front calipers. Looking for reman or the kits to fix them.
Jtsvp.com .... I got my rebuild kits from them a few years ago ... ask for tony
You don't mention what year. The calipers changed between 2004 and 2005. The 04 calipers are not available anywhere and neither are the kits unless you get lucky and find some NOS ones someplace.
I have a pair of 04 front calipers but they must be rebuilt. I upgraded my 04 to the 05 calipers, it's a direct bolt on, and the 05's are much better calipers.
Plus the '05 is faster..
not when you upgrade the rear end gears to 4.56 like 05-06 from the 4.10's the 04's had ;-) And RC's are way faster than QC's
Everybody knows that’s not true and that it is all in the color of the truck .... Black QC’s have always been the fastest
Well it's an 05 and they're not avalibe.
The rebuild kits are on jtsvp website
Children, children----RED is always the fastest.
Lol. Never red ! You have to look at the black QC stiffer and longer frame and it’s center of gravity for launching on the 0 to 60 times .... adjustments can also be made depending on the amount of groceries the grocery getter is caring .. the extra traction comes when the groceries do a hard shift towards the rear under full throttle making for the perfect combination of acceleration and launch ... races are won at the starting line ... the black color absorbed more heat giving even more energy to accelerate all they way through the top end ...
Yes I know and have them coming as a back up. Also forgot to mention that I rebuilt these calipers with newlines also about a year ago. I'm not saying I'm perfect but rebuilding a caliper isn't rocket surgery.
Yeah pretty simple to do as long as you don’t get stubborn pistons lol..
I have a set of 06 calipers that will need rebuilt. I have a rebuild kit as well. I wanted to sell as a set with the rear calipers though.
So how much?
I believe you can maybe get new ones from Roe. He's probably also got the kits. Might have to call and ask.
Shoot me an email. [email protected] I won't be around the forum for a few weeks.
For 2K. No thanks.
I rebuild them with STEEL PISTONS. The phenolics swell tight in the bores, holding the truck back, and burning the pads and gas. Mine spin free three years later. Medium trucks use phenolics, and they get so hot the phenolic blisters and explodes apart, like holding a torch on concrete.
Did they go rt in like ceramic or did you have to modify calipers? Thanks
