they should be easy to find...

RockAuto.com has these for the 65 BB Vette: ACDELCO 17D8

About $35 an axle.

Zinger, Rock Auto is my go-to for brakes. Looks like they have several choices available right now. Cheaper than zip, Corvette central, ecklers, etc.

Thanks for the info guys but I jumped the gun a little,
After a little research I found out what I have are the J56
brakes. So now I have to decide what to do.

I do not know what brake pkgs came on the 65 396, So I can not say the ones at rock auto are not for a 65 396. But they are all center pin. I have the dual pin j56 calipers, I wish they would work, could save me a lot of money. Thanks for your help.

Oh... I see your problem now... specific pads for a specific piston.

I would, if nothing else, drop Rockauto an email and see what they got. Never hurts.

I have learned that the three most important things one must have when owning a Corvette, and trying to keep to a budget:

1. The ability to fix it
2. Mad skillz on the Googles
3. Documentation

I am glad we could help!!

Can't wait to see some pictures!
