I bought the Mazda with a missing calliper on the left side, the seller sent 2 with the truck but told me that they don't fit the truck, so today i bought a $170 callipper and went home to finaly get brakes on the B2500....
The new callipper i got was wrong to:censored:

So i started to look at the parts the seller sent me.. i took one callipper and the bracket from the other and everything fitted nice... now the truck stops:D
