Rear Caliper Replacement (Crown)
My rear pass brake caliper siezed today while driving. I pulled over smelling burning brake pads and my Moabs were very hot to the touch. After a quick roadside fix and glad to have manual for downshifting, was able to make it back home.

I was looking on-line & from AZ for Calipers and it looks like for an extra $25 that the Crown ones may be worth while to get.

Was seeing if anyone had experience with these or have a recommendation.

crown automotive makes good replacement parts. I have used their stuff in the past.

What do they boast that makes the 25 sound like its worth shelling out? Just wondering...

Nothing really, i just gives a generic description for both.

I found the Crown ones for $75ea on-line and AZ wants $125ea for a generic replacement. The same plce that has the Crown one also has a generic caliper for $50ea.

I guess I'll take a look betwee them on-lin and see what it states.
