They are coated on the non braking surfaces so the stay cooler and don't rust. Also carry a 1 year warranty.
Bendix has a 2 Year Replacement Warranty
and they are thicker then most.

but thanks for the suggestion, but i think ill have to stay with Bendix

When you said you had to take out fluid, does this mean you had added fluid as the piston extended?

nope. not yet. im going to do that when i change the brake fluid.


radomirthegreat- When you push the Caliper back in it pushed the fluid back up into the reservoir. so you have to take some fluid out to make room if its too full already.

Me too.

Bandit, I wouldn't paint your calipers until you know they aren't sticking. I had to do mine twice. When you do, go with RED.

So i tested for pulling at lunch today.

They stop nice and straight and no pulling at all.

i think thats because i also Lubed up the bolts/pins really well before putting it back together
