I took off my calipers today to get them powder coated. All break lines except the left front brake line had 2 brass washers on them. One washer on the inside and one on the outside. I was careful when I took them apart but didn't see 2 washers on the left front. Should I get another washer for it?

The washers are supposed to be replaced whenever they are removed.

You definitely don't want to use the same washers after they have been crushed to torque settings especially on something so important as brakes.

I called the dealer today and they don't have rebuild kits for the calipers. i called Van Senus which is a big parts place around here and they don't have it either. Where can I find a rebuild kit for 05' Vette Calipers?
