Buying them new is a last resort IMO. Two words - JUNK and YARD. Plenty of these will still have the original calipers.

A whole caliper is $13 at my favorite u-pull, and trivial to access at the yard. Walk up to the counter with two caliper pins I bet you will pay less. Bring a magnet but probably just keep any that are still shiny.

Thats sweet pricing, Erik. Nearest to me is an hour drive, and showing $50-65 per caliper. When I add the time, the removal time, etc, FCP "Pay once and cry" seems like a deal.

I do see them at $20 down in Webster CT but that is quite a hike.

Ouch, can't refute the numbers.

That u-pull isn't my closest, just my favorite. It's 3 hours away but is in the regular travel circuit. And they get $13 + $5 core for a full caliper, but presumably if you're bringing pins to the counter not a caliper, there is no core charge. https://upullrparts.com/part-pricing/

BTW as to a question higher up in the thread: I recently returned calipers without pins to Rockauto, still received a full core charge refund. Makes sense given that they put in new (chintzy) slide pins as part of the rebuild.
