Convert your 1965-1982 Corvette's (2nd design) rear brake calipers from the original lip seal design to the long lasting o-ring design pistons. If brake calipers have been previously remanufactured with stainless steel sleeves - then upgrading your brake calipers is an option for anyone who wants to restore and improve their Corvette's brake system.
Rear brake caliper o-ring piston conversion kit includes:
- (4) O-ring style pistons
- (4) Piston O-ring seals
- (4) Piston dust boots
- Caliper fluid seals (between housing halves)
Note: Includes the correct components to convert a single rear brake caliper to the newer o-ring design. 2 kits required per Corvette.
Original-Style vs. O-Ring Seal:
Lip seal piston seals were factory installed in 1965-1982 calipers, and if you are wanting to keep your Corvette 100% correct they are the way to go. However, be aware that prolonged inactivity and/or worn brake components are the enemy of the lip seal design. If you enjoy exercising your Corvette heartily, or, conversely, your pride and joy often sits for extended periods, O-ring seals are the better choice. Superior in design all-around, O-rings offer the best sealing possible.
