I am kind of confused in Caliper section. Does it cost $369 Each ?
Also 2 front rotors means one on each side.
What happened was my front wheels got jammed and it was like cracking noise 15-20 before.
Do I have to replace rotor or just pad and caliper is ok ?
Customer: replied 9 years ago.
I meant to say the there was some cracking noise started 15-20 days before it was not much but it would sound when i apply the breaks.
Appreciate your response.

Hi, the calipers are 369 each, on the rotors you will need to double the price listed in the estimate to cover one for each side, sounds as if the calipers could be sticking/locked up, depending on if the caliper did lock up and damage the rotors bad,I recommend that you get a second opinion, without really looking at the brakes myself it is reallyhard to say , thanks

Hi, looks like he will be using aftermarket parts with the cost is cheaper than dealer parts, he also is going to flush all the old brake fluid out of the system , seems to be fair , thanks
