brake calipers

Does anyone know if there is a (smaller) replacement caliper for the rear of my 05 superduty? Mine came with factory 17" rims, and I need to be able to fit 16" rims for running the slicks I have. The stock calipers are just a little to big. I can grind them a little and they'll work, but if there's a smaller caliper that will work I'd rather use those.......

Maybe you can use a high performance caliper. Maybe a caliper from an older superduty that had 16 inch wheels stock may work on your truck. The years would be 99-2003 with a 7.3L, most likely you would need the mounting bracket and new rotor as well.
