Took the 68 out for a little run last week before changing the oil & noticed it pulling to the left when I apply the breaks. Checked out the frt rotors & they have slight groves starting.  Been almost 16 yrs since I last went over the breaks, time flies when you are having fun. So I ordered some CRYO slotted rotors & good dustless pads. I'll probably just order  some rebuilt calipers from somewhere like rock auto. Will repack the frt wheel bearing while I'm in there Roll Eyes ..don't remember if I installed stainless break cables but I'll check.  Do it right once & things last Wink

I decided to go with Wilwood break calipers. After pricing everything the price isn't that different. I could rebuilt them myself ,but I'm gettin lazy & these are a definite upgrade.
