It has come to my attention that there are some differences in the IFS calipers in relation to size. I was trying to do some fitment of rims I stole from JP and found that I was having clearance issues and needed to do some grinding. JP was able to fit the rim on his rig with the calipers that he had. So I grabbed all the calipers I had and found some differences.

The first is the caliper that I am currently using, the second is a reman, third OEM and last an original Cruiser caliper. I bought the first two with the same part number.

The IFS calipers have the same pads and piston diameter on all three with obvious differences in the second two compared to the first and only slight differences in the second and third, but they are different castings.

The cruiser pads are smaller and pistons are also smaller.

Just in case you run into issues, this might be why:

thats good that you posted this.. after Our talk today i went back and confirmed that when bill and i went to the wreckers we grabbed some good pads out of some wrecked calipers to put into some good calipers with crappy pads and indeed now looking again, bill had actually noticed that there were two different cross pin sizes (those long pins that hold the calipers and stuff in place) the pins that were in one caliper were definitelly too short for another caliper.. i wonder how many differences there were between all the v6 calipers from 90-95??

I called Partsource tonight and asked for 89-95 Calipers. He told me that there were 2 different part numbers and 2 different prices. One was for 'beefed up' suspension. Confused

If they have both in stock, and I go there to get the calipers, I will take pics of both and get a description of the difference.

The top one in the picture below came from my 90, the bottom came from the 89 parts truck I had.

I would really like to know if there is a difference in performance over just the casting. I guess bigger is better to get heat away??

Let us know what you find out at part source.
