    Well...

    I've discovered my 95 MTX has a frozen rear caliper... not a fun thing to discover at 85 mph. In about 3 hours I'm going to go pick up a pair of calipers, and I wanted to see if there is any bolt-in upgrade for the stock front and rear calipers. I know all about the 96+ upgrade, but I already have a nice set of slotted/cross-drilled rotors that were included in my purchase, these are definetly going on!

    I have the following available to me: Advance Auto, Autozone, CarQuest, Napa, a dealer, and Pep Boys.

    TIA,

    Tom

    The only rear upgrade would be using the 90-92 rear brakes, but I don't think you could get all the parts necessary from the auto parts store. You'd need to get the backing plates or entire knuckle from a 90-92 from a JY or someone with a parts car. The other option is to buy specially made brackets from Josh at SHONut or possibly Mike at MidwestSHO. You'd still need the calipers and mounting brackets from the earlier car.
