    Posi Quiet Front Brake Calipers
    I was impressed with the appearance, fit and finish of the Posi Quiet calipers. When I started the install, I thought I would probably have problems with the fit, but to my amazement they fit perfectly. I had however had my rotors turned so there was no ridge to contend with. I spent about an hour installing the new calipers and would give this product 5 stars. I received them in a very short time following my online order. I have driven the car about a hundred miles since install and the calipers are working perfectly. There is no better testament to a product's quality than that. Thank you for making those available. P.S. I also received my core charge refund very quickly after I returned the cores.
