    Why I'm saying this is that my brothers rear caliper is bad and he needs a new one but it cost like 200$ to 300$ for a new caliper. Thanks p.s DeRpYDrUmMeR

    Do you have the ability to do a little fabrication and welding?

    Great !! You adapt hydro brakes. Look at pics of 2003+ brake setup, or find pics of Awk08’s setup. You can use just about any caliper as long as bleeder faces up.
    If you don’t find a 03+ brake pedal you weld something onto existing.
    I used a warrior master w/resi , and Cali. Banshee, Warrior, or YFZ 450 are all good choices.
    FYI, you can use a floating rotor (pre 03 blasters) with any floating caliper. It’s actually easier because you don’t have to be as close.

    Or you could buy a complete 03+ rear brake setup.
