Does your car's brake pedal feel unusually spongy? Do you need to exert more force while stepping on the pedal to make your car stop? In that case, your car clearly has a brake problem. Either the brake pads and linings have grown thin, or the brake calipers are no longer up to the task of stopping the brake rotors from spinning. If the latter is the problem, then consider yourself lucky—you can easily solve it by equipping your car with anAMR brake caliper.Your car's brake pads are usually mounted on brake calipers. The calipers force the brake pads on the rotating brake rotor, producing the friction that causes the wheels to slow down and stop. That's if the piston in the center of the caliper is operating smoothly. If you haven't replaced the brake fluid for at least two years, chances are, corrosion has gotten the better of those pistons. The rust that forms and eats into the surface of the piston wall will damage the seal surrounding it. This calls for anAMR brake caliper to bring things back to normal.You see, rust will make it harder for the piston to slide in and out of the caliper. That's how you get "sticking" brakes. You could opt to clean off the rust and then sand the piston surface to smoothen it out. The problem is, once metal rusts, it's permanent. Even if you sand it off, it will corrode again—most probably in the very same spot. And no, you can't buy an individual piston for the brake caliper. What you need is a replacementAMR brake caliper.With a new caliper, you get a new piston, seals, and dust cover boot along with warranty for the new component. You can expect a long service life from brake calipers made byAMR. You can find top-qualityAMR brake calipers here at Partstrain.com.
