It comes with Slider Bolts (mounting hardware), brake bleeder screw, and the piston. It DOES NOT come with a Banjo Bolt, you will need part number 484-205.1 to complete a left install. It also does not come with pads. I chose #GMKD 369 pads.

Bought the pair, front left and front right. The front right came with plated (shiny) bolts, while the bolts for the front left were simple black oxide. The plated bolts were bent! As the bolts were threaded in I could se the head of the bolt move side-to-side. The caliper would follow this side-to-side movement as well as the bolt was threaded in. The black oxide bolts did not exhibit this behavior. With the plated bolt(s) chucked in a drill the excessive runout was obvious. I believe caliper bolts need to be straight in order for the calipers to work without binding. Brand new bent bolts? Unacceptable.

    Comments about Wearever Brake Caliper Unloaded Caliper:

    Calipers seem fine so far. one complaint....the plastic plug for the brake line was very hard to remove. I installed one caliper, then could not get the plug to come out. Had to again remove the caliper to get the plug out. I suggest removing the plugs prior to installing.

      Comments about Wearever Brake Caliper Unloaded Caliper:

      Calipers come with brass compression washers as well as the bolts. I believe 'unloaded' means that there's no brake fluid inside the caliper which is not a big deal because you have to bleed the lines anyway when changing calipers.

          Installed in a full size van upon replacing the pads. The OE calipers were frozen. This part restored back to factory original. No improvement over OEM but works as expected for the cost.
