brake capacity

anyone know about how much fluid it takes to fill new complete frt to back disc/disc system 69 camaro ? I'm going to use DOT5 and NAPA only has it in 350 ml jugs!

Re: brake capacity

I used one and a half of the 32-ounce containers for my new disc/disc install.

Are you sure you want DOT5? Most here do not recommend DOT5. Have you read some of the posts about DOT3, 4 and 5. If not, I recommend you do a search.

Good luck.

Re: brake capacity

yeah, I used dot 5 and wish I didn't.
not only is it about 4x as expensive but its holds air bubbles and any water in the system will settle in the lowest point and want to rust out
