    The fittings are not the originals ones that are on the standard lines, but they will fit.
    These are custom made by my local garage.

    OE rear brake hoses are #90445758 $54 (list price)
    AC Delco's Durastop line carries them also #18032383 $32 (list price)
    And of course there's other aftermarket brands for even less than that

    not sure about a stainless steel line, why are you looking for stainless?

    i can also offer you a nice discount on the calipers if you haven't ordered already
    (it looks like we'll have to go through VPI http://vpartsinc.com to get the rr calipers since GM has discontinued them and sold the stock to VPI)
    durastop makes loaded and friction ready calipers though (for a bunch less too)

    i went to my local gm dealer on friday to see if i could order two new left and right near calipers but they told me there was no guarantee that i would get them. they ordered them and told me to call back the following friday. i would for sure like to go ahead with your offer.

    Did you order solid or vented discs? The vented discs were a production change in mid-2001. Some owners have upgraded their solid rears to vented but they also had to buy the wider rear calipers to go with the vented discs. Be sure you've ordered the right parts.
