Contact Craig at Mobil Parts, a vendor on this site, he should have them. If he does not have one, he can also rebuild yours.

I wasn't aware mobileparts rebuilt calipers, I have a set that could use rebuilding. I even have the piston and seals. How much does he usually run?

I'm not sure he does, I think he sends them out. You could try calipers online and see what they charge

I had a tough time finding them for my 73 Fury but I did finally get the right ones.

I personally would never buy anything A1 Cardone. Problems almost every time.

One can get very well rebuilt calipers from O'Reillys Auto Parts using their Brake Best brand: https://www.oreillyauto.com/

That is where I go at least and their prices are very reasonable.

A1Cardone didn’t have one, but thank you for the heads up. Oreilly’s didn’t have it either, but that is where I shop often, plus they have a military discount which is a plus.

At my local O'reilly's store, they list them as available but are currently out of stock....

The other option would be to buy the calipers that Centric rebuilds - their new disc brake rotors are the best available anywhere for our C bodies........................

I see also that Centric is out of stock currently for our C bodies on their rebuilt calipers too.

I will try to find out directly from Centric why they are not available currently since they are local to me.

Greatly appreciated! Centric was the first place I checked since I purchased the rotors from them. They have the passenger side avail but not the driver side.

lots of luck ever getting anything from the ram man
Yeah I won’t be going that route. I initially got a hold of them in the morning, then tried calling back for additional info multiple times and they never answered. This prompted me to look them up, they have a very low rating and a lot of bad reviews, kind of glad they didn’t answer.. I ended up sending the caliper to White Post Restoration in VA.

TheRamMan was slammed here a while back for marketing C-Body spindles as being bolt on, the dimensions on his were WAY off compared to the OEM spindles used on the C bodies...I wouldn't trust him.
