calipers

i would like to know if there is a swap for brake calipers for the 95 e320 conv. i wish to replace my 4 piston calipers with a single piston caliper so i can add some aftermarket wheels without having to use a wheel spacer. i would like the swap to be a direct bolt swap with no or as few modifications as possible.

what kind of wheels do you plan on adding? Switching brakes is kind of drastic there. You can fit 18x8 et 35, without brake modification.

calipers

mike, i have a set of dayton wire wheels which came off a 560 sl and front caliper clearance is a problem. i had this sort of problem with a 68 firebird i restored and i replaced the entire spindle assembly form a single caliper tempest and it worked perfect. i was hoping to have the same fortune with this car, and i'm sure there are others that will work i just want to know if anyone out there has been down this road already. i'm thinking of trying some from a e430 but i want to be sure of fit first.
