You're going to get blamed anyway because you listened to him.


Buy a caliper bolt for the axle you have: 78-79 F-250 Camper Special D60, or a 78-79 F-350 D60 SRW.

Yes, she knows what axle she has. Neither Napa, Autozone, nor Murrays has caliper bolts in their computer, hence why she is asking WHAT BOLT to purchase.

You are SO full of shit.

Or the guy at NAPA is a dumbass. Print this page and take it there. The application I looked up was 79 F-350.

Okay, the "slidey" bolts you are referring to do not hold the caliper on her axle. That's what I thought you were referring to. They are part of the caliper assembly itself and hold the caliper together. I thought she bought new calipers? They should have come with them. If they didn't, I think that would classify as bullshit and you might want to go back to the store - especially if the cores that were returned were still assembled and had the bolts in them. They didn't sell you what you turned in.

Or maybe you can call someplace like Clyde's that might stock individual pieces like that.

Ok, that is the problem. I guess I will have to go up there. She special ordered the calipers cause nobody stocks them.

What we figured out was don't buy them at AutoZone and turn in the entire assembly, as you only get back the side with the pistons in it. :tonka:

NAPA sells the entire assembly with both halves of the caliper.

There's nothing mechanical or hydraulic at all about the non-piston side of the Ford D60 dual-piston caliper - it just holds the other pad. AZ only sells the piston side (according to their site) and the two halves just bolt together, so AutoZone doesn't have to pay for all that extra weight to be shipped back from China or whatever.

Its cheaper to do it that way, but she didn't know that she was only gettting half a caliper back when she actually turned in the whole caliper for core. The AZ employee should have said something when he saw that she was turning in the entire assembly, so he's either a douchebag or just stupid.

NAPA sells the caliper both ways depending on how you want to turn it in. The calipers I got from Carquest a few weeks back (same ones) also came complete with both halves.

Or both

I was just wondering. I looked them up and saw them as complete assemblies.
