Problem brake calipers 2006 F350

Hello, I would like to buy overhaul kits for all 4 brake calipers for my 2006 F350 6.0 DRW. I had hot brakes on the front axle last year. I renewed the front calipers, now I have in front right again sticking pistons. The exchange calipers were from Raybestos and are badly made. I have an agricultural machinery workshop and have often overhauled brake calipers.
Only to get good parts for my SD is very difficult here in Germany. I am now looking for high quality overhaul kits. Thanks

Did you buy re manufactured raybestos? Reason I ask is because they make brand new calipers, I put their new ones on the back of my 05 and they're great.

RockAuto has pistons and seal, don't know if they ship to Germany though.

The vehicle is a camper and weighs 6.5 metric tons. Are there brakes with better braking performance as the original ones?

I've tested how the piston "grows" when it gets warm. Dry installed, they probably get stuck.

the sticky caliper is not an epidemic , just an occasional occurrence
the phenolic pistons were supposed to prevent this better than a metal piston

it happens yes but other factors can contribute like bad fluid , bad hoses that keep pressure applied
my camper weighs 5.6 metric tons and does not kill calipers, I am still on OEm at 155,000 miles


the tow haul sure helps slow these pigs down
good luck on your quality rebuild kit search

The pistons seem to be conical.
