Best Brand of Brake Calipers ??

Going to replace both front brake calipers and pads on my 2005 crew cab Lariat. Is there any consensus as to a better (than ford oem part) after market caliper and pads? Centric, Raybestos, Wagner, or others?

Thanks, Hood Latch

My dad always used raybestos for cars but I just ordered calipers for mine. Motorcraft OEM, cant go wrong. Tousleyford seems to be the cheapest. Pretty close to the price of aftermarket calipers.

bwillis, thanks for the reply, but motorcraft o.e.m. would have to be a hell of a lot better than the ones I have already used from them!!

I use carquest rotors, pads, calipers. Calipers came with new bracket and pins. Was cheap too. 130 for the pair of calipers.
