Brake Calipers for 1989 D90? No Axel #

I need to order a front right brake Caliper for a 1989 Defender 90 2.5L Turbo LHD. It has solid rotors.
I will not be near it for a few days to check the Axel number and want to order ahead of time.

Does anyone know what the axel number is or what caliper I need to order?

Thanks so much!

You need to find your own axle number to get the correct caliper. It's on the axle tube, to the right of the rear left spring perch, and to the left(if you're looking from the front) of the front left radius arm.

IMO....... A 90 of that age "may" have the smaller piston calipers and, if so, you are best to just change to the STC1262/3 calipers that were used on all 110s and later 90s up to 1994. 26% more braking force. It also makes finding pads and such easier in the future as it is super common.

Get OEM calipers and pads.
Pissing people off on the "net" since 1983.
