Brakes linked or not?

How do I know if my (new to me) 1999 LT has linked brakes (front & Rear) or not. I have heard 2 different opinions on that?

Easy as pie. Look at the brake calipers. If they say BREMBO then you have the ABS II system- non linked. If they have BMW on them they are linked. I like my old non-linked ones best! Much easier to service!

Thanks Loren, I have the Brembo. Just changes out the front and rear pads today. And yes , I prefer the non linked as well. Guess it is a control thing.

BTW, I got some great information on changing pads and bedding them in from this site. The tech data here is really helpful as are the members who always help out. THANKS
