    Angry Where can one buy a brake caliper mounting bracket

    I have an absolutely frozen caliper guide pin stuck in the mounting bracket, I almost dead lifted my car just trying to loosen it up. Where can I order one for my front right brake? I have found tons of rear caliper mounting brackets, where are the fronts??? Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

    get a "rose" bud torch and heat up the metal around the guide pin and while your doing that put a pair of vicecrips on the pin and pull/twist. may take some time it took my father and i like an hour to get mine freed up damn mbrake plus didnt grease them. last time i paid to get them done.

    Just searched this and this must be common. Check this out though, the P.O. must have broke the pin off so they welded it back on!!!! These things need to be able to slide.

    Only reason I found it was because I was taken them apart to clean some crappy paint that someone had put on the calipers and I found it. Plus one of the bolts on the driver side is froze up as well :-(. Started searching E-bay and I found some (used), but who's to know they aren't the same as what I already have???

    Has anyone found these new anywhere yet??

    Ugh................

    They have a lot of parts, but as stated above, they do not carry the front bracket

    For those that need to know, you can get this bracket from Napa, but it comes with new calipers as well, for $60. Maybe not a bad price, but I still hate spending that on extra parts I don't need :-(

    Brakes = stopping (kind of important) LOL

    Yeah, I checked there too. Only problem with buying used is you could get exactly what you already have :-(
