so i take the wheels off yesterday to put in these lowering springs and first thing i do is check the brakes.. well guess what, the rotors arent vented..
my question is....to use the vented rotors, do i need new calipers as well??

I would not bother, they are a marginal upgrade at best, plus you can't just swap calipers and rotors, you need everything between the ball-joints in order to do "upgrade" to vented sliding yoke calipers. Upgrade to the 88+ style if you are going to do that.

i would love to do this but not trying to deal with the ebrake lines and all that jazz right now.. maybe in the spring..

do have to say tho. now that the car is lowered it would look killer on exposed lug aeros..

Stick with the solids would be my advice and, when I'm tired of constantly changing pads, I'm swapping out my cross-drilled and slotted vented rotors for solid Zimmermanns because these damn things chew pads like they were starving.
