If you're not racing I think the stock calipers and disks with Hawk 118 or other performance street pads are a vast and suprising improvment over standard or metallic pads. Very good modulation and feel and can be locked at will. They also reduce brake fade to a minimum.

What else are brakes supposed to do?

The Girling type 14 caliper was also used in Formula Ford racing cars. They were much lighter than a JH but it's not like the brakes won't work.

Get braided lines and replace the rear brake cylinders. Then flush the system with fresh dot 4 fluid. No issues here!
