Hello,
I'm gathering parts to completely redo my brake system. I am struggling with the right caliper, the brake booster and the rotors. I have read that Incan buy the 72 rotors and grind down the dust shield and I am good.
I have also read that the 72 calipers can be out on right on left and vice versa but no confirmation. Does anybody know if this is true. I've also read that late 79 gm truck calipers fit right in. Again looking for confirmation.

Finally, the brake booster I have no leads. Anybody know if the 72 brake booster can be adapted?

Any leads would be great.

Thanks.

Rotors and pads are readily available.
The booster, try "The 1965-1970 Cadillac Collective" on Facebook, John Abends page,
you'll find the proper booster there.

Thanks,
It's actually the left caliper I can't find. Is an Eldorado booster interchangeable?

My 1970 Cadillac DVC brake booster failed a few years back.  I replaced it along with MC no problem.  I ordered the parts from USDA Parts in WV 304-724-6600, and along wit them it has got to be that the brake parts remain available.  Rock Auto also looked like thy had the parts.  Rotors you may have to go good used worst case.

Grind down the inner circle on the dust shield AND use the 1972 & up inner grease seal.
