Reply To: Series 80 Brakes: Lining, Etc.


I know exactly what you are up against!  I replaced the brakes on my 27 S80 roadster this past winter.  The previous owner had the brake shoes relined with modern linings and the car would not stop.  My 14 and 18 Cadillacs with only rear axle brakes stopped better.  I took the shoes to Reno Brake in Reno NV and they fixed me right up.  I had previously had them reline my 18 Cadillac brakes and they are great.  I also have a friend of my that used Reno Brake for his 27 Cadillac and he is very satisfied with their work.  They knew exactly what I wanted so here is the information off the invoice:

FSC M9011-Woven Lining w/rivets

Total cost for 4 linings (one axle) was $171.57
