Rear Caliper Siezed... HELP

Hey guys. Im new here. Just joined today. I have an 85 Chevy Bluebird schoolbus. We take it to the Pocono nascar races and the bus is called the Pocono Boozer... hence my name. I have a rear caliper that is siezed slightly. Im thinkin its a bad idea to just run it. I need to find the caliper and new brake hoses. NAPA saiys they can get the caliper if i measure this one... but they cany get the lines. Anyone got any ideas for where i can get parts for this?? THANK YOU ALL IN ADVANCE!!!!

Re: Rear Caliper Siezed... HELP

previous experience tells me that if you need to replace 1 brakeline, it's probably time to replace all of the brakelines, you can either change all of them once or you can replace the weakest piece one at a time untill you replace them all. if you need steel lines, buy a roll of brakeline tubing from napa along with the double flare tools and fittings and make your own brakelines, they don't have to be identical copies, just make sure to tuck them in where they are protected from damage and secure them so that they don't vibrate/chafe against anything.
