67-68 4 piston caliper

Hi All,
Have the 4 piston caliper in my 67 camaro and pistons started to leak again, I had a hard time finding the correct caliper rebuilt kit. The part I found that worked for me when I rebuilt them was 5463232 they we for:
1967 1968 Chevrolet Impala Bel Air Biscayne Caprice and SS all models with 4 piston caliper disc brakes
1967 1968 Chevrolet Malibu Chevelle El Camino and SS all models with 4 piston caliper disc brakes
1967 1968 Oldsmobile ALL models with disc brakes except for Toronado
1967 1968 Pontiac all models with disc brakes
1967 1968 Buick Special, Skylark and GS all models with disc brakes

details of the seal:
large seal is OD is 2 1/4 ID is 1 3/8
small seal is OD is 2 1/8 ID is 1 5/8

Since they are leaking again, wondering if I the late corvette (1965-1982) 4 piston calipers will bolt right up instead of rebuilding them also found one for a Buick skylark. I'm starting to think that the calipers I got are really not from a camaro.

Rotors are thicker on the Corvette, but yes the caliper will bolt up: even if it won't stop the car. Have you considered stainless steel sleeved replacement calipers?

Not sure if it's cost effective, but you can also have yours sleeved...https://whitepost.com/brake-sleeving...ding-services/

Do you see a casting number on the calipers ? 5455533 is the outer, 5455530 is the inner, if I'm not mistaken.
