    Cannot seem to make a decision on my calipers. Both front calipers have torn boots. Just ordered power stop rotor and pad kit but I don't feel like dropping the $ on their calipers unless its my only choice I guess. Has anyone tried the aftermarket on ebay like (Callahan)??

    I can tell you NOT to go to Pep Boys. There rebuilt calipers were not satisfactory IMHO.

    From the outside, it is nice that they powder coated them. Put this into Google and lots came up: "callahan brake caliper reviews"

    I did that also and the reviews seem to be 50/50. I read a review about one person ordering both power stop and Callahan's and ended up with the Callahan's because the power stop showed up with missing parts and developed a leak at the piston during install. Another review said that callahan was made by power stop just branded differently.
    I definitely don't have time to mess around with a leaking caliper or missing parts.

    Had a torn boot on my drivers side front caliber as well. I picked up a rebuilt one from NAPA. Caliber looked like new, and haven’t had a problem. Paid about $100.00
