    The difference between the dx brakes and the lxi brakes is fairly marginal, most importantly they will cool better, but if you have rear drums then you will experience brake fade in the rear first. The prop valve is the most labor intensive part to install, but if you want to do that then I would look at a much better set of brakes for the front, like integra or porsche 911 calipers.

    Im curious how you will like them.

    I dont know how fixed caliper and non ABS will work.

    I know my newer cars the ABS is doing something all the time to keep the pads centered and mitigate pad kick back. My Jeep pulses the brakes when the wipers are on to keep the rotors cleaned off.

    They will probably just squeak like mad, but thats the charm of driving a car with fixed calipers. AFIK my type R does not use the abs unless it needs to... its brakes are noisy, but I kind of like it, unlike the squeak from your wifes crossover which has been riding on the wear indicators for 4 months.
