Powerstop Calipers

Has anybody had any experience with these? I think I have a leaking seal in a rear caliper and was considering buying these.

Some Amazon reviews talk of early failure, though, so it makes me a bit cautious.

Power Stop K2220-36 Front & Rear Z36 Truck and Tow Brake Kit

I have this kit and have been very happy with it. Approx. 20K miles so far all working well. Not necessarily answering your question though about calipers.

I have the same kit - Power Stop K2220-36 Front & Rear Z36 Truck and Tow Brake Kit with drilled & slotted rotors; had it a couple of years now with no issues other than an occasional squeak from the driver's side front rotor when the wheels are moving for the first time on a cold morning. My mechanic said it's normal with the Power Stop kit.

I have not heard of anybody using the Power Stop calipers before.

Well, then I might ask a different question:

Would using non-stock calipers give anyone a bit of concern?

It's hard to say if these are non-stock. Power Stop rebuilds the calipers and powdercoats them. Quote from there website

"Every caliper is expertly remanufactured, lubricated, and pressure tested in our Chicago, IL facility."

My guess is that they are "Jeep" calipers rebuilt by Power Stop.

I wouldn't personally be concerned about using an aftermarket or rebuilt caliper. They're a pretty basic system, without a lot that can go wrong if they're manufactured well, and Power Stop seems to be a pretty decent brand for brake parts.

Thanks, all!

Seems I definitely have a leak as I have been losing fluid, and have good reason to believe it's the right rear caliper.

As soon as I can get under the whole vehicle to make sure it's not a line or fitting somewhere I'll probably order the Powerstop rear pair and report back.

Now if only I had $$ to get some custom braided SS lines...

Looking forward to hearing about what you think of them once you get them in hand & installed.

You can buy SRT8 stock brembo calipers from car-part.com for around $150 or less, buy rear adapter plates to convert to the SRT8 bolt specs:

And the factory brake lines for the SRT8, then pads and rotors and you're good to go! Lol.

I bought all 4 brembos for $325.

As well as lines and almost all supporting parts to install them, I just have to actually powder coat the brembos and get pads and rotors.

Don't you need a bigger wheel to clear Brembos?
