hey guys, quick question regarding calipers. i got rid of my old '01 3.5L aurora and purchased a really nice '03 4.0L. it needs brake lines/brakes and has a passenger airbag issue. but my question is, when I do the brake lines and brakes, I figured i'd put some nice looking new calipers in there as well. the only thing is,when i search online, I only find front calipers for aftermarket/upgrade parts. the rears only get "OE replacement". if, lets say, i got PowerStop's Z26 front kit which includes pads/rotors and performance calipers, could i get the "OE speciality replacements" for the rear and i'll have no issues? or should the front and back be all the same?
The rears do not do much. However, it is a good idea to upgrade them as well IMO. I can't remember the year or model but the caliper bracket can be upgraded and use a larger rotor. Check the brake stickies.
IMO for the front go Lucerne V8 brake setup. Best bang for the buck and second to only the GXP setup. Again all the info is in the stickies.

There's a bunch of info floating around somewhere, but dido to what sall said. I believed there's an impala caliper set up also??? I've got the GXP calipers and big rotor upgrade and they make a work of diff!
