A quick BRAKE question

I was wondering if 2003 Ranger 2wd front brake rotors will fit my 2001 2wd Ranger? Are they the same size? Any help would be appriecated. The reason I ask is that I can get a sweet deal on some but they are for a 03 not a 01

I believe in '03 Ford made the calipers bigger, not the rotor. I may be wrong but honestly not sure.

They should work just fine. As long as it's '01+.

Bob....where are ya?

Halfway through 2003 Ford decided to put larger brake rotors on the Ranger. If the brakes your are looking at are the bigger ones then I don't think you can use them without the 03.5 and up caliper.

I heard that they went larger on the 4x4 but not the 2wd. I really hope this is true

heres one way to tell

measure both rotors.

the newer ones are 11.28"
yours are probley 10"

it also depends on weather the truck has coil springs or torsion bars.
