    Rockauto has lots of options

    G10,
    Welcome!!

    I was just looking at Rockauto.com for my '68 rear brakes. Seems very reasonably priced and lots of different options at various price levels. Here's a link:

    https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/...ke+&+wheel+hub

    Saw lots of Centric kits and parts, as well as AC Delco, Raybestos, Dorman.

    I'd be curious to hear opinions on quality. Does anyone have brands they would more highly recommend? Or tend to avoid?

    Cheers,
    Ry

    One of the variation that exists is depending on the rear axle ratio, there are two styles of rear brake cylinders.

    Look at the mounting bolt pattern; there are what I will call "side by side" (the more common one) or diagonal.

    I like Rock Auto also - for reference
    For springs etc. I see Raybestos has lot of different kits - eBay also has a lot variations.

    Any brake parts (shoes, wheel cylinders, hoses, etc.) that are made in the USA still available? Used to be AC Delco, Raybestos, Dorman, Bendix were - not so much anymore.
