I've not actually done the upgrade you discuss, but was planning on it for my 71 Big-Block. I think Willwood makes great stuff and that's why I have it on my list.

I put the Wilwood D8-4 caliper and hose kit (which includes pads) on our 1967 smallblock two years ago and have been vey satisfied with it. The hoses and calipers installed easily and don't leak, after a good bleeding, the car stops great! If you want a good set of light, non leaking calipers, these work. I went this route after dealing with repeated OE caliper leaking (even though SS sleeved) over many years.

Thank you for the response. I have had the same experience with ss, although they did perform for over 20 yrs. I am interested in losing the unsprung weight with equal braking performance.
