    Try some of the big box auto retailers, preferably Napa if one near you. If not, some of the others, Auto Zone etc. Good idea to take one of OE one's w/ you. Can go mail order Rock Auto. Lastly, don't find them, can always get rebuild kit and hone the one's y0u have if not to rust/pitted. I prefer to replace...

    yep ive tried that big box route and nothing. however i was hoping someone could recommend a good online retailer thats trusted. ive only used jeggs. but ill try big box with part in hand this time as one last stab.

    I can see why Jegg's wud not carry the parts you need; they are mainly, a performance retailer. Can't stock a lot of everyday car parts. I think RockAuto. com is good place. Check the site - have ordered many times from them...

    When I first bought my car, I purchased Centric brand wheel cylinders, flex hoses and a Wagner Master cylinder. I bought the parts all separately via e-Bay though.

    I have since swapped to 4-wheel discs...

    O'reillys should have them. I recently rebuilt my back brakes on the 73 and they had them in stock.

    I've used rock auto.com for all of my Maverick brake parts. You can't beat the wholesaler close out prices. You can even get a 5% off code from their vendor sticky on the forum.
