    I got a set of Caddy calipers the other day. I figured I could use them for cores. So I was just checking out some prices online and didn't find any with a decent price /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif So can anyone recomend a good place with a good price /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Well they are pretty rusty and Im afraid that the bore would probably be pitted, plus I looked at the price of a rebuild kits, pads and pistons and it would be probably more to rebuild. The pistons were $100 a pop on Parts America /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    Most places get around $80 each for the rebuilds, plus charge another $80 each or so for a core charge. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif So at least the cores are worth some serious coin when you trade 'em in. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif Those particular calipers were only made for 3 years, so they're getting pretty rare. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I have a used pair (core return) and a new pair sitting in my unlocked garage. Just come by and get them when I'm gone sometime. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    I lucked out and found an Eldo that had just arrived at the pick-n-pull ! They charge $5 each for ANY caliper! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I was a happy camper that day! /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
