What are Brake Calipers and What Do They Do?
They're the clamps in a vehicle's brake system. Any car, truck, SUV, or van with disc brakes is going to have them. That means everything from the Chrysler 300 sedan to the RAM 1500 pickup. Their job's to contact the brake rotors. Contact with the set of brake pads in between generates friction -- the resistance the vehicle uses to slow down and stop.
What are the Signs of Failing Brake Calipers?
They include brake and ABS warning lights on the dash, buildup and corrosion around seals, leaking brake fluid (either in the wheel wells, in the engine compartment, or in both), brake pressure problems, and pulling sideways when braking. You may also hear squealing and continuous grinding. Notice any such symptoms, and you should inspect the calipers, changing any afterward that the results require. It's generally the same process, whether on a sports car like Dodge Challenger, a Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV, or otherwise. Before you order anything new, though, be sure it's genuine, not aftermarket.
Why Buy Genuine OEM Brake Calipers?
Mopar designs them compatible with your make and model specifically, whether that's a FIAT 500 hatchback, a supercar like the SRT Viper, or something else. Aftermarket brake calipers may not always fit your vehicle as reliably as advertised.
