I’m selling left and right rear calipers and their mounting brackets that I pulled off a 1996 Corvette C4 IRS. These are aluminum PBR single piston units with a piston diameter of 40mm. They have an integral parking brake mechanism using a typical cable pull. The units are in good shape but not cleaned-up or re-built. $150 for the complete set: all four pieces (2 calipers and 2 brackets.)

The C4 calipers can be easily adapted to work with T-Bird rear knuckles using simple dogbone-style adapters made from 3/8” stock. I have a detail drawing for the adapter shown in the pics below. (Pics are taken from a Cobra forum. More pics available.) The PBR calipers are lighter units than the iron T-Bird/Mark VIII rear calipers and can balance well with strong front brakes. Corvette 12.01” dia., 0.79” thick rotors are used, re-drilled to fit a Ford wheel bolt pattern.

I couldn’t use these because my springs/shocks were relocated to the back leg of the knuckle. They should work well with a normal Locost or Cobra spring/shock location. Thought I should offer them as a complete set here first. Normally they are sold piece-meal.

Here's the units for sale:

And here's what the C4 calipers look like adapted to a T-Bird Knuckle:
