best priced vendor for these calipers?

and do you really think the money you spent on them was worth the difference in braking performance?

just some speculation before i buy a upgrade, and i dont want a ls1/ baer deal

thanks :headbang:

I have the SSB A181 calipers on both my cars...and IMO they make a big difference in stopping power over the stock OEM calipers...especially on my race car at over 130MPH...the only problem I ran into was some slight rubbing on my 87 GN...it has the original wheels and the top edges of the SSB calipers rubbed slightly so I fixed that with a little dremel work on the calipers...only had to shave a small amount off and you can't really tell where it was shaved...with the wheel/tire mounted you can see it at all...I got the kit from Summit...not sure what the "R" is in the part number you mentioned

one more question, my calipers came with no rubber seals on the pistons themselfs, is this normal for these style calipers? every oem caliper i change at my shop always have rubber expandable weather seals on the pistons?

Ouch for $400 - I'd be tempted to just got with the s-blazer spindles/brakes. It's cheaper and you still get 4 piston calipers.
