  • Brakes: 59-60 Lark Brake shoes

    I have a 1959 Lark that has 11" brakes on the front (11" x 2.25" to be exact), all the parts places have plenty of listings for 10" brakes
    Are these really that special ??
    I can get them from Studebaker Int @ $55.00 plus 100.00 core
    Just figured I could find the locally any help ??

    Front brakes on the V-8's are a re-line only item. Don't know why. Never scrap a set of cores. Many vendors offer the service. Dave Thibeault does mine.

      I'd love to help- but I don't where 'locally' is...
      Update your profile to include your location, and I'm sure someone 'locally' can/will chime in. There are many vendors out there besides SI~ and shipping those is not cheap!!!

      As to the part in question- yes- that big core charge tells you that they are a popular item, and that vendors don't have very many in stock. Returning your cores helps keep more 'out there' for reuse~ ask me how I know...
