Ordered a used set of 06+ Impala front dual-piston calipers last week. Cost $100 shipped and they only have 4 miles on them! Very Happy UPS dropped them off this morning, they're nice and shiny and of course, like new. One of them needs some spray paint cleaned off, but no biggie.

I ordered them from Nordstrom Auto, http://stores.ebay.com/Nordstroms-Automotive-Inc , they dismantle a LOT of almost new cars and the prices are pretty good considering how new a lot of the parts are.

They did come with the original pads, according to the parts numbers they are AKEBONO pads. Only bad part is that one of them was dropped and chipped, which is a shame since they are all new.

I ordered some Bendix TitaniuMetallic semi-metallic pads, heard they work pretty well so I'll give them a shot. Also have new Centric rotors with the black hats on the way.

Interesting. I didn't know the 06+ were 2 piston. Are they supposed too be better?

How does a wrecker get their hands on a car with 4 miles on it?

Yup! They should be a bit better, not really sure how much. The nice part is that they are FOR the Impala, not an f-body or something else, so the master cylinder and pedal and everything works identically. I've read up on them, and the pedal and everything feels the same, just with a bit more stopping power.

My RF caliper has a stripped slider bolt anyway and I was going to get reman calipers, this actually costs me cheaper, and I needed to do pads and rotors anyway. Very Happy

Look around at some of the other cars on there, it looks like they buy a lot of rejects from GM. A lot of them look damaged during transit or during test drives, or have other issues and GM doesnt want the liability.

Car companies are also limited by the govt in regards to how much "repair" work they can do to a "new" car. I've heard the dealer is limited to like $900, more than that and a car HAS to be salvaged! This is to prevent a dealer from fixing up a damaged new car and still sell it to you as "new" for the regular price.

There are a few cars on there where the roof and trunk lightly grazed an overpass. It happens Laughing

i thought about this when i was doing the fbody brakes. the good side is that it does not mess with the hydraulics as much. but the down side is that its a heavier caliper which messes with sprung weight. the fbody is lighter than stock single piston.

but i would prefer having the better hyrdaulics. let us know how it works out.

Alan

They weigh 33 lbs for the pair including pads, just checked. Probably 5-10 extra pounds per side over the original calipers? Dont think thats a huge amount of weight. On the bright side, its not extra rotating mass.

They're a huge company that sells OEM brake pads to a LOT of car makers, GM and Asian companies seem to all use them, plus others. They sell them aftermarket also, but they're not as big here and none of the auto stores sell them, so you have to know about them in the first place and then buy them online.

Nope, havent gotten around to it yet. Working almost every day and dont want to do anything on my few off days. Laughing

The 06+ Impalas have completely different calipers, rotors, and pads, than the 00-05 models, so your pads wont work.

Yes, he is fabbing it to his 02 impala. Alot of people use the f-body calipers. they use them cause they are dual piston/look biger and better.

OK. That is what I thought, just wasn't sure. Thank you.
So now we (I) need to know what else would we (I) have to change / do?

Any drilling, change rotors fill me in please. Stainless lines, got that.
Sounds like a good upgrade. Cool :
