Almost completed my D60 swap

Thought I was going to be done today. Anyone have any 95 or older caliper brackets they no longer need? Found out the hard way my d60 won't take my existing brakes. Other than that, I am finished.

yes, and mounting brackets. The brackets are looking like the hard part to find.

As in the slide pins themselves? Help section at autozone or the like should have them, like $5 I think

Not the slide pins. I need the whole brake assembly. The mounting bracket that attaches to the axle, and the calipers

I made the exact same mistake when I did my D60 swap. I knew about the kingpin axles using different brakes but didn't know about the balljoint ones having two different styles. Your best bet is going to be buying calipers, rotors and pads. What you would have to replace is the entire knuckle and if your lucky enough to find a set it will probably be over $500. I bought powerslot cryo rotors, reman calipers and hawlk pads for about $400, the calipers came with pins.

Another option you have is using this as a excuse to install a 10.5 Sterling in the rear and installing super duty knuckles in the front. You would have unitbearings unless you upgraded but you would have better brakes.

Honestly I would hit up a junk yard first, and if no good candidates buy new

I don't think that will be everything he needs. He could use your breaks but he wants to keep the new style which means he needs D60 knuckles. D50 TTB knuckles are special.
