Your factory Toyota brake calipers are crucial when it comes to making your vehicle stop when you apply the brakes. As part of a disc brake system, they're home to the brake pistons and brake pads. When you step on your brake pedal, the master brake cylinder pushes brake fluid through hoses and valves. That fluid pressurizes the pistons in your calipers. The pressure makes the brake pads clamp down onto the brake rotors. This creates the friction, or resistance, needed to slow and eventually stop your wheels from rotating.
Genuine Toyota Calipers are Your Best Option
There's a tremendous amount of heat that's generated when you brake. That heat can damage even the best Toyota brake calipers. Their seals may decay, allowing contaminants to sneak in. That leads to rusting. If you pay attention, though, it's fairly easy to spot the signs that your calipers may be going bad. You may see your brake or ABS warning light flash on your dash. The brake pedal pressure may feel different. You may even hear grinding or squealing noises when you brake. Driving with damaged calipers can quickly damage your brakes, which is unsafe. Play it safe and replace yours with authentic Toyota brake calipers. They're your best choice because they're the ones made specifically to fit your vehicle best.
