I plan on getting my '88 z24 out of storage in 3 or 4 weeks and one of the first things I will need to do on it is to fix the front brakes. I crushed a bleeder valve last fall, trying to flush the fluid. It appears new calipers are cheap enough that I don't think I'll even mess with trying to free the stuck (now stuck and crushed!) bleeder valve -- just replace the calipers altogether... the current ones are a little rustycrusty and new ones would probably work a lot better :)

so I was looking to see what I should order for new calipers (and whatever other components I should get - I figured I'd replace the rubber lines too. anything else??)

Rockauto has half a dozen different calipers they list. Is there a "better" brand or model I should go with? I figured I'd just get the AC Delco's unless there's something that works better or is cheaper for the same quality, etc... ??

My braking system on my 89 convert has suffered from lack of use. Wanting to replace everything, so I am in the same boat as are you. Can not find a source for brake line set. Do you have a source?
