Purchased a set of Wearever calipers to replace originals with 180,000 miles on them. The rust on the old brackets was making it impossible to install the new pads for a simple brake job. New calipers work great with little fade under hard braking. Quality of seals and hardware seems pretty good. New pads installed in just a few minutes. Clips were included. install on the Jeep was also very fast. New copper washers were included for the brake line install as well. Bleeder valve was easy to open and took just a few minutes. Overall these calipers are very good. Time will tell how they hold up, but the first 200 miles have been great I would buy again

not sure where all the 5 start reviewers come from but i want to make all you buyers aware of this caliper. it does look new and it's of very good quality for a rebuilt but the surface where the brake line meets the caliper with the banjo bolt that is supposed to be machined has been pained over and the surface is not perfectly smooth/flat. if you look at the back of the caliper (1st picture in the listing) it's the surface around the green plastic plug. what that does is create gaps and allows the brake fluid to escape (maybe a little, maybe a lot) - depends on how lucky/unlucky you are. and if you are not careful (like me) when torquing the banjo bolt, it's going to fail and that's not a part any Advance Auto Parts or Autozone anywhere carries. You either have to buy it online or try it at your dealers. So, do yourself a favor, either get a new caliper or even a used one online will work a lot better than this.

      Check the bleeder screws before installation

        Comments about Wearever Brake Caliper Unloaded Caliper w/Bracket -Domestic:

        Be sure to check the bleeder screws before installing for 1) screw size, 2) quality and 3) ease of cracking as you may need to bleed the brakes after installation.

        I bought left and right calipers at the same time and unfortunately did not check the bleeder screws until after installation. The bleeder screw on the passenger side was 10 MM and the bleeder screw on the driver side was 7 mm. The 10 MM screw cracked easily, however, the driver-side screw was seized (!?) and my wrench just rounded the nut, so not a high quality screw. Took a pair of vice grips to crack the screw. Not enough clearance to put a bleeder hose on with vice grips. Now I've got to get a new bleeder screw, more brake fluid, and crawl back under the vehicle to replace the screw and re-bleed the brakes (since the driver's side front is the last in the bleeding order). Had I checked before installation, I could have perhaps cracked the screw while the caliper was off vehicle where I might have had better leverage, or better yet installed higher quality screws of the same size before installation. Obviously would have preferred high quality screws of the same size to be installed on the calipers in the first place.

        Fit was for 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4L and was perfect. Also installed new Wearever Rotors and Ceramic Pads. No squeaks, normal heat.

                    got the Fenco parts and calipers for changing them and no instructions at all. Is there a place to find out exactly how to re-install with new parts. Have an idea but want to make sure. Thanks.

                      For help with your project, I recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.

                      No, it does not include the new bolts. Stock ones can be reused with this new caliper bracket.
