It seems the car is officially too old - even normal replacement parts like rebuilt calipers are hard to find. I've exhausted every outlet I can find to get a reasonably priced rebuilt front, left caliper. Nada. The last one in stock, possibly in existence was DOA with a frozen piston. The bore is damaged on the original so rebuilding doesn't work for me either.
So onto option 5...Outlander calipers. These are readily available and cheap as they are less than 2 decades old but need different lines for the banjo. My plan is to put these on the stock bracket and use stock size rotors so I can still put my wagon wheels back on with snow tires.
Does anyone have a part number for a suitable stainless lower brake line that ideally has the flare on one side and banjo on the other to take the place of the now flare/flare lower line? Does it exist? Something from a different car maybe? Or - is there an acceptable adapter that someone has proven can fit on the caliper without interference?
