Caliper rebuild kits


Afternoon all,
Any recommendations for the best O ring front caliper rebuild kit?
Getting my calipers back from paint next week so getting ready to start putting back together!
Cheers
Ian

Or cssb in Florida who also sell on eBay.com with the global shipping program.

Rock auto are proving ridiculously cheap with vat paid at purchase.

Hi Ian,
Are your calipers stainless steel lined? mine were and after speaking to Scott at Corvette Kingdom I stayed with the original lip seal type and have had no issues whatsoever, no more leaks and brakes work fine, discs must run as close to true as possible, this is essential whichever type of seals you decide to go for.

Re: Caliper rebuild kits


The important thing with the Lip seal type is, if the car isn't used for a period of time you need to just press the brake pedal a couple of times a month to make sure the seals don't "sag" then start leaking.
