Ok, the rotors are identical except for bolt pattern

the calipers are "big" or "small" anyone know the difference ???


Thanks :)

They are different than the Camaro/Firebird. The backing plate is steel and part of the assembly. The F body are tin and bolt on to the caliper bracket.
Here is a photo of the ones I dropped off at your house.


I thought the Caddy ones were what you wanted so you would have the 5 on 5 bolt pattern to match the front.

Hey Phillip... i'm just questioning the caliper differences i guess... it's unclear as to the difference. between "big" and "small".... piston size, or is span different too ???

i was going to use the aftermarket rear kit i bought on the 68 C10 and the T/A's were going to go on the Flyer... i'm not too overjoyed with the aftermarket brackets on the Flyer.


i just got off the phone with my Part House. they're ordering calipers for me ta look at... so i guess i'll find out later on... i'll post up what i find out...

The span of the calipers are different between the ones for 11" rotors and the 10.5" rotors so if both had 11" rotors you may be ok. but the offset from the axle mount to the centerline of the rotor may also be different. I know that the Camaro set up I had and the 82 Eldorado set I am using on the Nova take a different offset on the rotor to align the caliper properly.

i'll double check myself later on to confirm, but my Parts guy told me the dimensions on the Caddy rotors and the T/A rotors are identical... other than bolt circle. and as ya said, yes, i want the 5x5 to match the C10 front... rotor diameter 11-11/64...

the calipers i know have a bigger bore piston from one to the next, i'm wondering on ear spacing, e-brake location, bleeder etc etc... are all gonna be OK... this too i'll find out and repost...


i think it woulda been easier if the guy stated right off the bat these are for a Seville and not a Trans-Am.

i see it as false advertizing... which ain't right...

Yeah, no biggie... the bulk of the calipers appear close to being the same... it's the bolt span that the difference is in... from what i saw.

i anticipate no problems... but what do i know :rolleyes:
