Rear brake caliper frozen
« on: November 19, 2006, 09:05:31 PM »
Any suggestions where I can obtain a used rear caliper bracket?  The caliper is frozen to the bracket.

Thanks

In Addition to E-bay you might want to try your friendly neighborhood bone-yard // "an automotive salvage yard",  the only drawback is that; to keep the cost for secondhand parts down you may have to "pull it your self"  :)

Advance Auto Parts has a fairly good selction of calipers available online. Prices range from $99 to $214. Might want to check this out. Maybe cost a little more than a used one but are rebuilt with a warranty.
