ACDelco Expands Brake Caliper Line

This fall, ACDelco, the aftermarket brand professionals trust most*, announced its new – not rebuilt or remanufactured – brake calipers that will be sold with no core charge.

In a first for ACDelco, the brand is now offering an all-new aftermarket brake caliper available in cast iron and aluminum with no core charge. The cast iron parts are zinc-plated to help with corrosion protection. Critical components come pre-lubricated for smooth operation, including the pistons and bleeder screws.

The new calipers are launching just as remanufactured aluminum calipers for vehicles built in the 1990s and 2000s are becoming harder to find. “Aluminum calipers can only be remanufactured so many times.” said Josh Shuck, brake product specialist, ACDelco. “This caliper gives shop owners a new, highquality option that eliminates a few headaches along the way.” To learn more about ACDelco contact your local ACDelco representative or visit ACDelco.com.

*Based on Global Market Research April 2016 survey of independent auto repair shop installers of brands offering products in five or more parts categories.
