    Poor quality re-manufactured caliper!

    I am never one to write reviews. But on this product I must. I always give products the benefit of doubt, but this re-manufactured caliper has given me nothing but headaches to the point where I wish I would have purchased a different brand. Unfortunately, I have paid my money and cannot afford to pay for another caliper. I understand that there are sometimes defects in the manufacturing process causing a product to fail. That is expected with today's manufacturing. Unfortunately, this caliper has failed me five times thus far. I replaced my oem caliper with this unit. The first caliper worked great..for a little under 2000 miles. Then one of the pistons froze. No biggy, Duralast has an awesome lifetime warranty. Replaced it with a second unit at no hassle. it seized in under 300 miles. Third time is the charm. Installed it, everything torqued to spec and all lubrication points lubricated as usual. Bled the brakes. That caliper had one a piston which would not relieve its pressure. I mean I had to put a pry bar on my lugs to turn the hub. No good. Immediately got another caliper. And it worked great! I thought that I had finally gotten a good product. Almost 7000 miles later and one of its pistons failed. Got a new unit, install went perfect as usual. Unfortunately this caliper out of the box has frozen pistons too! I need to go do another warranty exchange, AGAIN. Maybe the 6th time I will have a unit that will last.

    P.S. yes, I know how to install a simple caliper. As a mechanic, who rebuilds engines and transmissions regularly this is a super easy job that anyone can do with basic hand tools. Fortunately, I have an immense amount of patients and love working with a company who has always provided me with excellent customer service. I just have no idea where Duralast has these calipers rebuilt, but there must not be a quality control sector at that facility. I really wish that I could give this specific product negative stars. Hopefully everyone else is having better luck with this replacement caliper than I am.

    Pros: Absolutely none

    Cons: the caliper pistons
