Should I replace all of my brake parts when replacing my disc brake calipers?
No, you may not need to, but it is a good idea to inspect them for wear, cracking, or leaking.
Should I replace my disc brake calipers frequently?
No, you may not need to, but it is a good idea to visually inspect them at every tire rotation. Inspect internal components that may not be visible, such as binding slides and pistons, when servicing brake linings.
