A1 CARDONE Remanufactured Friction Choice ® Brake Calipers are remanufactured to meet or exceed O.E.M. performance. With the freedom to choose whatever friction you desire, A1 CARDONE Remanufactured Friction Choice Brake Calipers can be tailored to meet your needs.
Most common reasons for failure are:
Corrosion caused by internal water intrusion (brake fluid absorbs water).
Sticking or frozen pins, bolts, or slides that cause excessive inboard pad wear.
Contamination from the brake system.
Improper fluid when used in a system which uses a petroleum based fluid will cause all rubber components in the brake system to swell.
Frozen bleeder valves in the caliper housing due to external corrosion.
Overheating due to residual pressure from the brake system not allowing the piston to return.
On rear calipers, failure to use the parking brake regularly causes the parking mechanism to corrode preventing the caliper from being properly adjusted.
IMPORTANT: Calipers should be replaced in pairs to prevent uneven braking. The brake system should be thoroughly flushed with the recommended fluid from a sealed container and the sliding surfaces must be lubricated with the proper grease for your application.
