spindles and brakes
« on: February 16, 2006, 05:06:00 PM »
what years did the 1.25 rotor come on the 2wd half ton or is it more complex then that

the reason I ask is that many moons ago I ordered a set of sindles through godfathers and they told me the 79 I had the 1.25 rotors without me measuring and they were right so what years or models came with the 1.25 rotor

I believe heavy halfs and diesel trucks had them.

Sorry, I guess that was a short answer...  RSBAD454 is correct.  Diesels and Trucks with the HD (Heavy Half) suspension had the 1.25 rotors also.  Along with every Blazer/Jimmy and Suburban.

acording to the measuring tape at advanced the 1979 replacement rotors for a regular 1/2 ton 2wd is 1.25 inches no hd spec or anything but my search must go on for a more specific answer

The specific answer is if you have HD suspension, you have HD brakes.  ALL Jimmy/Blazer, Suburbans and Heavy Half pickups have HD brakes.  All trucks with option J55 also have the HD brakes.
