seize caliper

hi guys, just got my 2004 wrx (80000m) back after two replacement/refurbed front calipers, one stuck two weeks ago but thought i'd better do both; just wondered would this be within the normal mileage for this to happen to other members, she doesnt get thrashed much and why do they come back painted silver? doesn't exactly tie in with the red rears....
cheers guys

Re: seize caliper

if they arent serviced correctly then they will seize, also ask why the seized in the first place, are the pots smooth or rusted etc?
It happens a lot when DIY`s change brake pads, all they do is change the pads.

Re: seize caliper

thanks bob, serviced every 10000 miles by ex main dealer, he said they do go now and again, had to send them away as couldn't get caliper kits to be done at home...90 each side plus labour , he said it should be like having brand new calipers now, so i suppose i can't complain....not fussed on the silver finish though lol!!
thanks m8
