    Need new brake calipers....which to use?

    I need to replace the brake calipers on my truck. I have Rotor Pros dimpled & slotted rotors with Akebono pads. Can I use any caliper or do I need to use something designed for this type of rotor? What brand of caliper is everyone using with their Rotor Pros? Thanks!!

    I went with new Raybestos calipers from Rockauto.com. Been great so far.

    You can find some pretty good deals on Amazon too.

    I went with the PowerStop painted calipers and they have been great.

    What's the difference between unloaded, semi-loaded & loaded calipers?
