Say, Funk, I am absolutely crazy about my KVR pads, cross-drilled, cad plated rotors, and TechnaFit lines. I have used Axxis Metal Masters for years, and although their hot performance was quite good, their cold performance (especially in the wet) was awful.

I am curious. Why do you need new rear calipers? The rears, if functioning properly, work quite well.

As I have stated before, make sure you clean and grease all your caliper sliders and pins. The calipers should move in and out quite freely. That, good pads, lines and a good bleed, should have you happy as a clam.

stripedmx, how do you feel about Power Performance rotors? they´re slotted and cost 72 dollars a piece. how about Power Stop Drilled and Chamfered Vented rotors? at 71 dollars a piece. These are just a couple choices on NOPIonline.com Just wondering if you heard anything about these rotors.

Well as far as I know the calipers brake fine on the rear....its the parking brake that is the problem...I will explain....

Ok for those who don´t know the force applied to the hand brake gets transfered to both rear wheels in the GT with disc brakes.....it pulls DOWN on a lever on the back of the caliper which makes the pad clamp on the rotor....problem is my ´levers´ are rusted solid to the rest of the caliper and the springs on the back are shot too....I need a hammer to release the brake when I apply the hand brake....The only 2 options I see are a rebuild of the caliper (too much time effort and margin of error on my part) or new calipers....which are like 65 bucks a piece after core charges...
