    I'm planning to upgrade my 1st gen front brakes to the Tundra 13WL calipers. I've searched the local junk yards, but there aren't any Tundras at the moment so I started looking for rebuilt calipers online.

    These are the ones I've found so far:

    Centric Posi Quiet Loaded Caliper (either zinc or OEM colored)
    Power Stop S2712 Performance Caliper (powder-coated red)
    brakeperformance.com Semi Loaded Caliper (option to powder coat)

    Does anyone have experience with any of these? I really like the blue powder coating on the brakeperformance.com calipers but I can't find any reviews on them (lots of reviews for their rotors, but none on the calipers).

    Thanks.

    Napa Eclipse are dipped in a ceramic coating. Plus you can get your core charge back if you bring in your Taco calipers.

    Been running Napa Eclipse for about 2 years, no issues.

    Thanks guys. I would still like to hear opinions on the brakeperformance.com calipers, though.
