    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.

      Installed on 1991 Chevy C1500. Exact fit and very inexpensive. Works great. Came with all bolts and bleeder needed to replace old unit.

        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.

                    It was a nice surprise to find out that it also came with the replacement slide bolts and that they were already greased. It saved me a lot of time and aggravation by not having to clean and prep the old ones.

                        Hi MAG JR, happy to help you! This part comes with a limited lifetime replacement warranty. The limited lifetime warranty part can be refunded for cash/credit within the 90 days time frame. After that time expires, it can only be exchanged for a new item. So the warranty is valid for the life of the part as long as the customer owns the vehicle.
