Changing calipers and rotors on NAS 90.

Any recommendations?? rock auto has calipers for significantly less..... otherwise was just going to order from Trevor which I assume are likely Proline.

Also, correct me if I'm wrong, front vented and rear solid?

thanks for any help

Trevor likely does not sell Proline. Yes vented front, rear solid.

Rebuild the calipers you have. I have had fine luck with aftermarket rotors but terrible luck with aftermarket pads.

They appear to be in pretty bad shape, piston looks permanent in there..... inner pad was soaked in grease
and seems rebuild kit $25, new calipers $60-100
not huge difference

When I checked a couple of weeks ago a Genuine rebuild kit was on back-order for a few weeks. They might be available now. That is for the kit with new pistons.

Check with Will Tillery. He had a D brake sale a few weeks ago on dweb

Found it.... it was only for the front. Doesn't harm to ask Will if he can get the rear.

Go with oem branded calipers. Or a stainless piston rebuild.
