FC/FD Caliper rebuild kits
« on: August 21, 2015, 11:58:34 PM »
Does anyone know where I am get a full rebuild kit for the front calipers? They've got to include all the Pistons as well, bigredd don't have them, I've searched high and low and nothing so I've come to ask if anyone else has had any luck.

Have you tried on www.rockauto.com? Shipping can be pricey so might be worth trying to find a few other things that ship from the same place? :)

I got a set of rear calipers for my FC from the same people earlier this year.  Very quick delivery and cash back on the return of my old ones.

From brakeparts? At £15 per piston, that's bloody pricey for a set of 8.

In fairness I was only after the calipers themselves, not the pistons.  Car Factor UK sell the pistons at a much cheaper price.

Yeah I've been looking at those. Not sure if I trust them though.
