Some vehicles use the same calipers on both sides. Others do not. Compare what's on the truck now to the replacement caliper. As long as they're both the same, you'll be ok. HTH. -Jim

No. They are mirror calipers if you know what I mean only left fits left and right fits right. I checked at http://www.autoanything.com

The rotors are same. The caliper would bolt on but brake line attachments would be on the rotor side
