I need to know if the calipers on my 1973 dodge sportsman camper van will fit on my 1978 dodge futura camper van. I got a new van but the front brakes went out but I just did the old ones?
Do you
have the same problem?

GO TO AUTOZONE. COM

PLUG IN EACH VEHICLES INFO (NEAR TOP AND CENTER--"CURRENT VEHICLE")

THEN GO TO THE TOP RIGHT AND ENTER THE PART YOU NEED (OR HAVE)

DO BOTH VEHICLES---COMPARE THE PART NUMBERS

IF THEY MATCH--IT WILL INTERCHANGE

I DO THIS MYSELF SOMETIMES
