I have a '81 4x4. It has the single piston caliper on the front disc brakes. The 3/4 ton p/u came with a dual piston caliper.
Has anyone tried to mount the anchor and caliper from the 3/4 to the 1/2?
Sounds like a long shot, but If the bolt patern is the same on the end of the axle and the calipers will fit in 15in wheels.....I would be willing to go for it.

TIA

I don't think it will work. Isn't the rotor a bigger dia. on a 3/4 ton?

As far as I know the entire front end assembly is completely different, everything related is a bit larger on F250's. A nice idea but I'm sure you'd be stepping into a deep pile of mess by trying it. No-Go I'm afraid.

Yeah, with my luck, it would be a big STINKY pile.

Just another reason I can give to my wonderful wife why I need to go with DANA 60's.......hehe thanks guys.

Thanks for your help,
