Brake caliper set
I purchased this pair of calipers due to seized driver side caliper piston causimg a noise on my cross drilled and slotted rotors. The parts installed as hoped, easy and correct. Used raybestos hoses aswell to complete install. Bled system and finished up quick. Everything went right on the test drive though found my truck has low flow to left front. Overall the parts were correct and work as designed, making me happy i now have new calupers and hoses and did not pay a fortune for the set up.
