I found several posts with this conversion from drum to disc on EA82(2wd). I found new discs and pads on net but no calipers. I would like to go new, as what I found so far is cheap enough.I can make my own brake lines custom if need be. Any fav place to look? I can't find new calipers anywhere, and locally is not an option.I gave up the 15 inch tire conversion, brakes seem to be a realistic thing to do. :-\

I also have EA82(2wd) :banana:

I priced out new parts as well. You should be able to get everything but the backing plate from NAPA. The only place (I know of) where you can get new backing plates is from the dealer. I did find a dealer on-line that would sell the plates for $65 each which was a lot cheaper then the local dealer. I think NAPA sold the Caliper for $73.99 and I also have $55 in my notes so there was either or core charge or I was able to talk the guy down.

I ended up going with used parts.

I hope this helps! Good luck!

Any EA82/XT/XT6 rear caliper will work.. That should open your search options a little.
