99 40FDS. Brake parts

My passenger caliper dragged very badly and I imagine toasted quite a few parts on that axle. Who is the caliper manufacturer and or where are parts available from. I appreciate any help

…..after the fact now but believe all 98/99 Alpines with the 2-piston calipers require periodic lubrication of the slide pins to prevent rust and dragging...there is a lot info on the this forum regarding this subject....a search of "brakes" using the "f104" limiter in your search string will restrict your search to Alpine posts only.....

I don't understand what you mean by using f104

I'm way past lubricating it at this point. The rotor was cherry red. Nearly burned up

The brake parts can be found by using the casting numbers on the calibers and rotors. Use a good truck parts center and they should be able to find them for you.

….the IRV2 forum has a pretty effective search engine for doing your own research on all things Alpine. For example: if you type the following ["f104/brakes"] into the search block at the top of the forum page, you will retrieve all the threads in the Alpine portion of the forum that contain the word "brakes." "f104" limits your search to just threads on Alpines... Try it--I think you will like it!.....

Kenzz05,

I found rotors, pads, and calipers all readily available at NAPA auto parts for my 1998 36FDS Alpine. Likely the same part # as yours. Don't have numbers here but I can get them tomorrow if you need them.

If you over heated them as I did you may need ABS sensors also. Readily available from Amazon at a much better price than local truck supply houses.

Please post parts numbers for those of us that may need them in the future as well.

Thanks

Rotors -- Webb Wheel 54775P-65
Caliper -- NAPA #SE8609
Pads -- NAPA #UP7655M - 73mm

As others pointed out, the caliper casting number is key to finding all the parts. No mystery, just crawl under and look at one caliper. All four take the same parts.
