Do I need new calipers?
I had the breaks off the other day and I noticed the inside pad on the driver side is not worn evenly. It looks like maybe only one piston is applying pressure. The pad is worn much more on one side. I didn't take off the passenger side so not sure if it is also worn like that.
I remember I had the breaks done at 50 thousand and the guy pointed out the uneven wear then and said the caliper should be rebuilt. Of course i trust nothing a mechanic says. However, I could not afford it at the time.
I have 100,000 miles on the truck and they are the original calipers. It has always seemed to stop fine.
If I was to replace them, should I get a part from the dealer or after market? I am going to get some good pads and rotors so better caliper would be good.
