Is there some listing of Shimano component model numbers that can help me find a currently-manufactured part that is equivalent to an old model number that is no longer being manufactured?

In particular, I'm looking to find a currently-manufactured replacement for a Deore LX V-brake, model number BR-M570.

This brake pivots around an internal sleeve built into the brake arm rather than pivoting directly on the cantilever brake post. I need something like this since my brake posts are corroded and will not be a good bearing surface.

    Are your canti studs threadded? Might be a better solution to replace them, or look for a whole replacement fork. – Criggie May 15 '18 at 0:11

    HAH I googled for "shimano BR-M570 replacement" and this question is now the top match. There are a lot of ebay hits for this model number too. – Criggie May 15 '18 at 0:12
  • @Criggie no, the studs on my frame are not threaded as some are in order to be swapped out, and it's the rear ones that are corroded, so it's not as easy as swapping a fork, unfortunately. – Mike Eng May 15 '18 at 1:02
