Problem finding Calliper for Disc conversion.HELP

I am doing a Disc brake conversion for my Dana 44 and started calling junk yards for rear brake callipers from a Cadillac Eldorado 1979-1985. No one has anything that old!!!! Are there any other newer years that will work that have the same bolt pattern???

Or does anyone have any callipers that want to sell? Or know where I could get some for a reasonable price?

I just saw a site that offered modular disc kits that used Seville calipers. Unfortunatly, I don't remember who it was and I was looking for "banjo bolts" [img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img].

Check parts stores. Last time I checked you could but them new for around $35 each.

Good ol' NAPA -

1985 Caddy Eldo with a 350 Diesel (only option I guess???)
NAPA Tru-Stop Disc Brake Calipers Caliper - Left Rear - Remfd - 2422100 $ 51.99 Core 66.00
NAPA Tru-Stop Disc Brake Calipers Caliper - Right Rear - Remfd - 2422101 $ 51.99 Core 66.00

While it may not be honest, I'd buy the calipers from NAPA (or your store of choice), take them home, find a set of junk calipers from another vehicle that are just lying around (junkyard if necessary) and return the junkers for the core. The morons at the parts stores won't know the difference.

If you don't have to have the emergency brake from the Eldo calipers, you may be able to use the $12.99 calipers at Autozone for a 1983 Monte Carlo (front). This is the way I decided to go when I switched to rear discs from TSM.
