actually depends on your driving intentions. daily driver single piston caliper and plain rotors are fine. track time or heavy footed driving dual piston and slotted rotors will provide better repeated braking.
I am a firm believer in "simplicity".....less moving parts, less to go wrong.
I removed the original 4-piston Kelsey Hayes brakes and replaced them with later model ('72 LTD wagon) single piston for that reason, AND the fact that no aftermarket wheel would clear the HUGE 4-piston calipers.
But thats just my way of thinking....

Thanks for the input guys! I can get the Calipers at cost (buddy is parts manager for a GMC dealership) so I might go that route, I like the look of the machined aluminum body vs. the steel casting. probably go std smooth calipers as well.
Now i gotta get a list of other things together, dust shields, hoses, etc.
