Default Where to buy oem calipers? Anyone selling?

One of my front calipers is jammed and I figured I'd replace both, called lexus and they cost 420$ each which is ridiculous, I saw some used for 110 for both fronts on eBay but idk if I trust that, anyone know where I could get oem cheaper? Or if anyone uses aftermarket calipers and how well they've worked for you

you could try the parts store or simply upgrade to the Supra Calipers.. You can find them on ebay.. if your worried you can always buy a rebuild kit..

I am using some no-name brands I picked up locally and so far (about a couple of months) I have had no problems. They are rebuilt and cost about $100ea. I think the only thing you have to really worry about with rebuilt ones is the durability of the seals that they use. Everything else on a rebuilt caliper is pretty much the same as oem (except maybe the pistons). If you do your routine maintenance and regularly clean and lube them up I would think they would be fine.
