    I have the caddy calipers on their and they are leaking out out the e brake arm, what can i do to fix this?? Also i have to put my foot to the floor to stop now, i know about bleeding the brakes, but this has happened before and the fluid was low,, when i filled it back up the pedal would stiffen back up to normal but now the fluid id ful and it still goes to the floor. Any ideas?? Thanks

    yes there is a rubber bushing inside those holes where the e-brake arm goes through, if the calipers sat for a long time w/no fluid in them they may have dried out and cracked, i have taken them apart before but it was a BITCH!, you would probably be better off to buy remanufactured units for 40.00 ea. by the way, i am putting a 14 bolt in my 1990 next week but i am only the seville calipers which may be too small which ones are you useing? how much did you spend on your tsm brackets and which disc did you use? thx j.c.

    I am using the deville calipers, they are reman units that are not more than 5 months old. The tsm kit ran me 299 with brackets and ford rotors.
