Where is the best place to get stock front calipers, good ones, for cheap. Is there a difference between the calipers I would get at a place like Pep Boys and what I would get at MSA? My Z is a 240 by the way. I want stock calipers and the shop I use (Z-Sport in Everett WA.) wants $70, MSA is $60 plus S/H so they are about equal. I'm sure I can go to any auto parts store and get them cheaper but I worry about the quality and mis-matched pads. BUT, I'm broke, so I can't go all out.
Thanks
Anthony

Are the 280 calipers the same as the 240's?

Yes, this can be verified in the section on changing/upgrading calipers in the archives under the toyota 4-piston caliper conversion( also see the internet z-car club homepage)all stock calipers were the same at least thru '78.
