Check the parts/vendor list in the archives Zelenda in NY is a good source.
 However I found out (by accident) that a hex head 6 inch long 5/16 ths
inch lag bolt (that was hanging about in my tool kit) had a head that
perfectly fit my caliper retraction plate.

Check with Linda at Carlson I just bought rotors and pads all the way
around for my 87 5KTQ for $385.00!
