Question Rear disc calipers -which ones? Chevy 12 bolt

I have read that although a lot of guys are using them, the 70's and 80's rear disc calipers are a bad design. This is due to the emergency brake needing to be applied often to keep the brake adjustment tight.

Some guys on the Chevelle boards are saying to use 4th gen Camaro, or recent Corvette calipers. But I have not heard of anyone actually putting them on, nor seen or heard the details.

Is anyone using any calipers from 90's era cars? how about you guys using the calipers from 70's-80's, any problems? Which you had gone another way?

I have the 12 bolt in the shop now for upgrading. So I need to get the calipers and rotors I am going to use to them in the next few days.
