Do brake calipers have a "size"?
I've never been completely confident in my "junk yard" rear disk set up. Mostly it's mental, with some physical re-enforcement. I've always been able to stop when I've wanted to. But the pedal has always been super soft to the touch.
My set up:
'84 S10 Brake booster
'69 Vette master cylinder
'93 Crown Vic rear brake calipers.
Nice mix of parts, eh?
So I've been doing a lot of searching and reading on here. Nothing has jumped out at me as to what would make my jeep stop on a dime. I did like the suggestion some body (RRICH?) had about comparing the setup the MC was originally equipped with, to the set up I have. I think that's a good idea. But how do I compare '93 Crown Vic calipers (single piston) to 69 corvette calipers (4 piston)?
