I'm trying to figure out what kind of rotors, calipers, and brake pads I need for the front of my van. I keep getting the wrong ones that don't fit. Please help

Wow, I did a quick peek at parts listed for that beast and see your problem. Are the calipers one-piston or two-piston? What is the rotor diameter; 302mm, 305mm, 328mm, or 330mm? The 302/305 and 328/330 being so close to each other, you need to measure rotor diameter very carefully.

I'm not sure about the calipers. Napa store told me they were 2 pistons and the rotors not sure. I guess I'll have to measure them first. Do you know how to measure the rotors?

Are you taking the actual parts, a rotor and caliper, in to a NAPA store? They should be able to measure the rotor, or easily match it to one on-hand. If they have not seen one of your calipers, are ust going by parts listings, then I still must question how many pistons on the caliper

No I am not. I'll have to look at it myself. Thank you for replying to these questions.

Post some pix of the caliper. Wrap a tape-measure tightly around the circumference of a rotor; then divide the circumference by pi (3.14159265) to get diameter.

Ok, the sxt has different size than the base model. Have a great day. Try giving you vin number, it is on the pillar where you get in the caravan sxt model with chrome wheels.

Go to a Chrysler parts department. Give them your vin.
