Autozone will be able to get a Cardone refurbished caliper for you. I have used them with good success.

I need new pads and I have searched the forum, but cannot find a good answer to what is "best". I do not like the oem pads because they feel soft and do not inspire confidence in hard braking situations. I am going to buy the neuspeed stainless brake lines and also want a new set of pads. I have 41k miles on the car now and they need to be replaced. Seems like the general consensus after searching is that most people use the OEM PAgid brake pads. Does anyone have a recommendation for an alternative that has better performance. I do not care about brake dust that much.

Stay away from cardone.

I can have the caliper rebuilt and I have all the pads and rotors if needed. Contact me. I can help. Just send me VIN and I can quote prices lower than most on OEM rotors and PAGID pads.
