One quick way. Look see if you have coil springs up front with air bags inside. Than it is a P chassis.

I have Bosch Calipers and have replaced all 4, the fronts are the same as the rear, they are 66mm pistons and used on many trucks and should be available at any truck or RV dealer.

Yup. I got it figured out that it's the P chassis with Bendix brakes. I'll be doing the calipers on tomorrow and hope it takes care of it.

I thought Workhorse was now owned by AMP Trucks. Just when did Freightliner buy them???

In March of this year AMP did indeed buy the Workhorse brand. Freightliner (Mercedes) has never owned Workhorse.

So does AMP own Navistar as well?

Replaced the calipers and all is well. No more pulling and no more cooking brakes. Thanks for all the help everyone.
