Default Which brand rebuilt calipers for a CVT?

Is Raybestos worth $2 more than Centric?

Hi Atikovi,

Since most if not all are now made in China, or they send blanks over and are drilled here, not real sure it make a difference anymore. If one says made in America it may have been drilled here, but it's still their steel. Don't know if that helps but something to think about.

Sorry about that. They send a blank lump of steel over in the basic shape and it's gets finished and the holes drilled in it for use, and smaller parts installed finishing the manufacturing process here and claiming American made. The parts sometimes are stamped American made, so you'd have to open the box and check, so yes they are to an extent, made here, but the steel is not.

These are aluminum calipers and "reman" basically means cleaned/shot blasted and seals and hardware replaced. I would be surprised if there was a big difference between brands. I ordered Cardone from CARiD and am happy with them.
