Thinking of replacing calipers

Post by gsa60 » Wed Feb 04, 2015 9:55 pm

Hi,
As some of you might have noticed I'm doing "restoration" on my braking system.
Next will the rear calipers only. The front ones are good.
I'm looking at a refurbished pair on ebay.
the pair contains this caliper
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rear-Left-Bra ... 56604a478e
Has anyone ordered this item? Any review?

BTW:
Disks and pads will also be changed. Any sugestion? no need to go to "black diamond grooved+drilled" level. Just some regular good disk+pads. I'm using currently some old brembo disks. Not so bad.
Cheers

I am going to be rebuilding my own calipers but I may just purchase some of these as well - Use these on my car and rebuild mine as spares and for the experience.
Let me know how they go :)
