    I'm guessing any caliper without ABS around the same age should be ok (LS models), I can't see there being a difference between 8v & 16v brake calipers although I don't know for sure but I can't see how 16v would make the brake calipers any difference. I can't say I'm a mechanic but I'd be quite happy to replace it myself. A bit of common sense and logical thinking is all that is required I recon. Get yourself a haynes manual and all will be revealed.

    Welcome to AS get some pics up and let us have a look then. :-)
