Hey guys, I need help sourcing 1988 brake calipers, I tried the fiero store, they don't have any in stock and I can't find any anywhere! I would like a new/rebuilt pair. Any ideas??

I used Calipers Online last time (2017), but this was when it was still possible to get NOS. Looks like only remanufactered are available now.

I would do it, but it looks like you have to send in yours to buy those, I don't want to send mine anywhere, I just want some remanufactured ones that I can buy, I don't care about an extra core charge.

Looks like carparts.com has used ones at various yards. You could rebuild them or use them as cores.

Calipers Online never had NOS rears (just fronts)

They're just covering their bases; so many people aren't sending in their cores for the Fiero calipers to be rebuilt that eventually they won't be able to sell them, due to no product.

This is the first I've heard about preemptive cores - but, I can't say I blame them.

I totally agree and understand, but Its my only car, and can't have it down for awhile. It's what I get for dailying a fiero I guess lol. But still haven't found any! I can't even find cores to send somewhere, it's absurd.

If you need to have a rear caliper off for a while, you can swap one of the more common 88 front calipers to the rear. Bolts right on, same piston diameter (no bias issues) and it will work just like stock, but you won't have the parking brake (which might not be working anyway). Quite a few people run 88 front calipers on all 4 corners.
