    New rotors, pads, braided brake lines, and sensors should be here Monday. I'm struggling to find new calipers though. As soon as I get them, they're going in

        Any Chance you can just rebuild your calibers? Might be a good option.

          No, they're so rusted it's kinda scary.

              It's possible if I can't find new calipers. But I'd feel more comfortable with new ones considering their condition. They're pretty bad

                yeah just give them back as cores when you find some rebuilt brakes. O'reily's has them for pretty cheap, i think about 200 for all 4 corners.

                  Call Olympic Brake Supply in Seattle. They've got Centric Reman Calipers.. Really good Calipers, only ones I'll buy if they are available. Seems like they always have them in stock or at least can get their hands on then in a day or two.

                      Anyone with a WorldPAC account can get (good, name brand) reman brake calipers. Front and rear, ATE or Girling, they are in stock (I just checked).

                        :( I wish I had a worldpac account... Or access to someone who does. But alas, I do not. Unless someone is willing to play middle man for me.

                          Any shop worth a damn or an import parts house can get them. Worth calling around, for sure.

                                Yeah then you wait, and pay markup cause we all gotta make money right?

                                Or you can call Olympic Brake in Seattle 206 547 3458. (They have a Lynnwood store too but I deal with Seattle.) and pick them up today. I just called them.

                                ATE Reman Calipers by Centric - 115.88ea + core

                                Girling Reman Calipers by Centric - 100.58ea + core

                                They have both sets in stock and ready to go. Just my .02 - also if you end up buying brake shit from Worldpac avoid WBR..
