rear calibator

I have a 2000 LT. I am looking for the pin that go through the pads.

there a two and have holes for the hair pin clips.

They can be in bad shape, as I am going to try to modify them.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Re: rear calibator

Take a pin to the hardware store. Find the long metric bolts ( notice the threads don't go all the way up the shank). Choose the correct diameter replacement, saw off the threaded portion and drill the hair pin hole.

The only problem with using a bolt would be losing the locking expansion ring on the factory pin. The hairpin is secondary security to keep the long pin in place.

Good point. Use a cotter pin instead of the hair pin. That will hold it.
