Just about any DOT3 and up rated fluid will work, but if I'm doing a complete system, after flushing all the lines, I would go with the DOT5 silicone fluid. Used it on a Harley restoration and was impressed with the brake feel and the plus of the silicone being a water repellent and doesn't damage paint.
Just started my C5 upgrade also. Blazer spindles, new ball joints, tie rods, and all new stainless lines front to back. Passenger side done. Moving to drivers side. Went to order my American Racing 18" and was told they were out of stock with no expected instock date. Guess it will be on Jack stands for awhile
I agree. I had the adapters for a set of camaro wheels that were given to me years ago and I do not like running them so I decided to buy new wheels that will fit without them.
As part of the original post question, since I'm running all new lines and front calipers most of the old fluid is out. If I ran DOT5 will the entire system need flushed or will a little bit of DOT3 be fine?
