Did you check the PN's to see if they shipped the correct rotors?

I believe that the brakes for 2WD coil spring trucks like yours from 1998 ~2000 are 10.28". The rotor size increased to 11.28" in 2001.

For some reason, many brake charts also include a listing for 1998~2000 2WD torsion bar trucks as 11.28". However, there was only one model, the fairly rare Trailhead, that fits that category and it was only produced in 2000. I think this listing is what causes the confusion.

I am sure that Jusnes will take care of you. They may not be able to get the Power Slot Cryo rotors in 10.28", though.

I had done the opposite in the past on a 2003. I put rotors on that were too small. Talk about wearing out a set of pads too quick. The outer ends of the pads were still full thickness while the rest was worn out. Wasn't good.

Autozone listed two sizes when I gave them the year/model info on them.

Jusnes site says they are for the '98 Rangers.......

you should prolly go get yourself the caliper mounting bracket for the 11.28" rotors.....bigger rotors is ALWAYS better......i am sure that a junk yard would sell you them for little of nothing.....

Jusnes WILL take care of [email protected]

yea......if they will sell the spring hanger brackets, then i dont know why they wouldn't sell brake caliper brackets....i am sure that they get broke in some front end collisions

the caliper mounting brackets are all the same.. what make the difference in mounting location is the knuckle itself(also called a spindle) so your stuck with the small size rotors no matter what
