Hey I’m new here, looking for front rotors on my Catalina. It came factory with disk front and will eventually need rotors for it and can’t find any anywhere. Down the road I want to upgrade the suspension but can’t find anything there either. Ultimately I want it to be a fun boat to cruise in with some power I can take down the strip occasionally

Have you looked at RockAuto.com? I see rotors from AC Delco and Raybestos listed. Are the front brakes of a Safari wagon that much different that a four door? I'd ask RockAuto.

If that doesn't work out......

Do you want the bad news or the somewhat good news first?

The bad news is the '69-70 Pontiac B-cars are rather unique onto themselves and the after market doesn't really embrace them much anymore (a lack of demand means no one has very many parts).

The somewhat good news is there is a kit that allows you to convert your front disc brakes over to a much more  parts accessible stock '71-76 Bonneville front disc caliper, pads, and rotor. However, this conversion will require you to run a 15" wheel. The conversion kit comes from a company called Scarebird Classic Brakes. It's $235 by itself. You still have to supply the 71-76 caliper, rotors, pads, and flex line. It's more expensive than a simple set of rotors and pads.

So check out RockAuto first....

 

What specifically do you want to do the suspension? A stock rebuild? Lower it? Donk/lift it?

      Hello, our 16 year old found a 1980 Phoenix that had less than 80k miles on it for less than a grand so she bought it. After a water pump, pads, calipers and rotors we still cant get the drivers side caliper to retract.
      The passenger side is fine.  When the car is on stands and in drive the rotors are turning true, no wobbling, which is hopefully telling me the hub is running straight.
      When the brakes are applied the drivers side caliper, which is brand-new, wont retract back unless I open the bleeder valve. When I open the bleeder valve the caliper retracts and the wheel hub starts spinning normally.
      Can anyone please give me some insight on what the problem may be? The caliper is getting plenty of fluid on the bleed but just isn't retracting. 
      Thank you,
      Dana

      Hey fella's! New to the page. but i've been thinking of doing an Auto to Manual swap in my 69 Laurentian. i know these cars came with either a 3-speed or 4-speed, could anyone help to identify these transmissions? and possibly track down a clutch pedal/linkage assembly.

      I have a 2000 pontiac grand am 3.4 liter i recently changed my front breaks and i understand new pads smell a little but i drove it on the freeway and at one point i had to push break pedal all ths down to stop what did i do wrong? Also it kind of overheats temp goes 3 notches above normal temp but never fully overheats once i start moving it cools down just want to fix small issue before it gets worse any advice would be great. One more where are the other spark plugs only 3 are visible in front and how do i get to them?
