Okay, 2005 2500 140 WB, 16" wheels.

What size rotors on the front?

276 or 285mm countersunk or non-countersunk retainer?

Gotta love this, why cant the VIN describe this? :idunno:

flman,
You are going to object to this...but go ahead!
If you take your VIN# to an authorized Mercedes Benz Sprinter Dealer (a commercial one with better hourly rates and perhaps a discount on
parts pricing) you will get the correct diameter brake rotors.
It's all in the MBUSA/MBSprinterUSA epc.startekinfo/epc parts data base.
Shop elsewhere for Sprinter parts YMMV! And, you get what you paid for.

P.S. Or, you could pay the $12.00 annual fee for epc.startekinfo/epc and run your
VIN#.
It will come up with the right parts about 99% correctly.

Thanks Roger, I am not objecting, I have a local foreign parts store and I like to give them the business, and they do not stock crap. Mostly German brands.

When I first got it the Dodge dealer said you had to pull the pads and show them what you have?

For a dollar a month and a couple of Sprinters, I think I will sign up.

flman,
Send me your Sprinter's VIN# by PM or email and I'll take a look on the epc parts database + send you your build DataCard if you give
me a valid email address to return the .pdf file to you.
If you do spend the $12.00/year, make sure you can find a copy of Java 6 (latest release of ver. 6 works fine).
epc.startekinfo/epc doesn't work on the later releases of Java.
I found this out the hard way.
Hope this helps,
Roger
