4 Piston Caliper Rebuild
« on: January 11, 2006, 06:02:32 AM »
Hey Guys,

I'm getting ready to have my calipers rebuilt and don't know where to send them. Any leads and or prior experience with any rebuilding companies? They are not in bad shape, I actually completely disassembled them easily but want them to be checked professionally to see if they need to be sleeved etc. Thanks in advance.

Vette Brakes!

$99.00 per wheel. I had mine done a few months ago and they work great. They also warranty them for life!

Vette Brakes - that is the one to use.

They did my 67 11 years ago - never a problem.
Tell them to rebuild YOUR cores, so you get the same ones back.

Like most of the rest of these guys I sent my cores to Vette Brakes back in 1995/6 for sleeving/rebuilding. Haven't had any problems with them since.
- 1967 RS/SS 396/TH400 (loaded clone restification)
- 1998 Z28 LS1/M6 (daily driver)
- 2002 Z28 LS1/4L60E (12 sec toy/bookend to the 67)
