New rearend in my 71 Nova

Now that the good cars are put away here in Wisc we dream of May when things start to get nice again. My project over the winter is to get the rearend ready for May. I had my 10 bolt redone (i won't get into all that) 355 posi but now onto the brakes I"m not going to convert the rear brakes at this time but do need complete brake job except the backing plated and lines. I have had great luck with my rebuild so far and lots of help from everyone. I would love to hear from anyone that has information, opinions and or great places for brakes parts and information

I buy all my brake parts @ the Car Quest Auto store. They have the parts and pieces I usually need. I deal in older stuff than 1971 as a general rule ... so they should be OK on the newer stuff you need. IF I need something on Sundays ( I disapprove of working on cars on the Sabbath ) but sometimes need forces it ... I go to NAPA ... because they have a state wide supply warehouse facility open on Sundays near my home.

I prefer Car Quest ... only because I have a great working relationship with them. I can look @ all the parts books, go in the back and hunt parts ( visual on hoses and fittings ) and they know I always have something weird going on and will need to adapt ... I have free reign over the place to buy parts ... and they sell to me @ wholesale ...
