    Hey guys

    Are ext:s front brake calipers the same as the shorties?.

    I have changed my rotors and pads and after today's 100 mile trip I find that my right front caliper is binding and beyond rescue.
    As you might know EXT is quite rare here in Sweden and my budget is small so I thought about getting a used caliper from the junkyard. Problem is all they got is calipers from short wheel base Trailblazers. They look the same if you look at the junkyards pics, but I might be wrong.

    Anybody know??

    The caliper is the same the only difference is the bracket.

    Ok, are you sure?, I think it is also but not 100% sure.

    I noticed it says T370 in the casting on the bracket and thought it was the bracket that was different, not the caliper.


    Thanks!

    The bracket is the difference. There are also a number of threads in this subforum discussing this same question if you need more assurances :wink:
