Looks like I have quite a while before I need to think about it despite The Speed Bump being exposed to NY & VA salt/brine on roads. Thank you for your reply.
My boyfriends rear caliper seized at around 95,000 miles. My own CRZ (the black one) is at 130,000 miles. All my miles have been in salty NY. My boyfriends CRZ has only been in NY since 60,000 miles (purchased from owner in Kentucky).
The Autozone Duralast brand were like $95 each, and I think the core was $25 each. I had a $50 Autozone gift card ready to go too, and there was a 20% sale on their website.. Really wouldve saved me money but currently they are sold out, even on eBay (I had found them on eBay too).
Instead on eBay I got the NASTA for $126 each. If I wanted to return the core Id get $55 back each. So overall the cost for a remanufactured rear caliper is about $70 each.
I guess I will have to use my Autozone gift card on a downstream O2 sensor for that P0420 check engine light!
Out of curiosity what did the 2 re-manufactured Calipers cost and what was the Core Charge? I agree with your decision to rebuild them yourself and put on the shelf for next time.
How many miles before you needed repair/replacement? The Speed Bump is getting close to 67K miles and I am still on Original brakes all the way around and I am curious when and how much I should budget for the brakes.[\quote]
