I have it re-installed on the car the hub spun by hand before I put the caliper on it. So I have a 90SDL spindle, an 84 new rotor & the one that was on it caliper, will this work?

Or maybe I need an explanation on how to make sure the caliper pistons are backed out completely. I put a new caliper on the left side w no issues but again the pistons were in all the way like they should be.

Leavittsburg? Like Labrae high school right? Thats pretty close to me actually.

I did a gig there a few week ago for that festival they had in the one parking lot.

Looks like the part IS compatible:

So you have it all bolted up on there?

I forget what style of piston that car has. If its the single piston style I would just use a big C-clamp to push the piston back in so you can get the pads installed.

If its the 2 piston I can usually compress them with a big screw driver.
Cruise Control not working? Send me PM or email ( I might be able to help out.
