The caprice 9c1 got wider calipers to fit thicker pads. No improvement in braking but the.thicker pads gave a longer service interval betweennpad changes.. fleetwood brougham limo had the widest caliper, i think the rpo for that was J55, but I will have check my notes.

Very common mod to these cars. The wagon spindles from the 80's are essentially what all 91-96 sedans and wagons, with the exception that the 91-96 knuckles have provisions for the abs sensors, if thats important to you.
