New brake calipers
« on: November 06, 2019, 07:37:55 PM »
Has anyone used any of the new aftermarket front brake calipers that are available now? They look like the K/H caliper but are new castings not rebuilt ones. I am tired of getting rebuilt units that leak. I have two that leak at the bleeder screw. This is not for a Shelby so I am not worried about originality.

I see NPD still has some made by SSBC. I think I will give them a try. So far 3 out of the 4 remans leaked on me.

SSBC is out of business now.

Who else is out there that isn't using a modern, glossy epoxy coated caliper?

Ive rebuilt a couple of new sets of SSBC  calipers that came in their kits. After I put original style parts back in them they never had an issue-  prior to that they seeped all the time
