Remanufactured calipers are available from stock for most vehicles, and for hard to find units we offer rebuild and return service, which usually takes one to two days. It is very common, and in some cases routine, for brake service facilities to recommend changing the calipers as part of a brake job- we do not go along with this approach and believe they should only be replaced when either leaking or sticking. Generally speaking rear calipers tend to be more expensive than front's because of incorporated hand brake components. Most new calipers are prohibitively expensive.
Rebuilt calipers are available from various suppliers, and come with or without brake pads. The quality of the pads varies considerably between manufacturers, so if you are looking for high quality we recommend purchasing "bare" calipers and getting the pads separately.
When rebuilding or replacing calipers it is wise to replace any brake hardware. Worn hardware can easily cause squeaking or squealing due to vibration.
Prices vary tremendously depending on the vehicle, and range from $19.98 exchange up to $299.98 for older 4 piston types.
Repair kits (usually just the seals and dust boots) are available for the do-it-yourselfer, but on late model vehicles they may not be offered by any manufacturer. Additionally, most kits do not contain the small "O" rings needed once the caliper has been split apart.
