my stepson gave his mother a 78 L82 the brakes are very soft. removed rear wheels to bleed brakes, and found that at some point in time someone must have busted off the bleed and drilled and bushed it. not sure if this is acceptable or not.
I am just going to replace both calipers due to the corrosion.
rotors are 1.275 thick, 1.215 is minimum. is it worthwhile to have these ground?
also passenger side rear has 3 bleed screws driver rear has 2 and one plug. what are the correct number of bleeds per caliper?

any info would be appreciated,
Thanks George

There are 2 bleed screws on each rear and one on each front. Check out Vette Brakes in FL. They will sell you the right parts.
