Has anyone ever tried to swap out the Akebono calipers for the Bosch ones? I may have a frozen caliper and since I bought the wrong rotors and pads (Bosch) a while ago, if I have to replace calipers I'd love to use my shelved rotors and pads.

So I've stumped the community with this one I see.

Do we know what the difference is in why one Armada would get Akebono front calipers vs the Bosch? Like tow package vs non-tow package or something like that?

If you were to swap for the Bosch calipers, then you’re going backwards. The Bosch calipers are for the smaller 320mm rotors and pads which were on the 04-06 armadas. Some of the 06 armadas produced later in the year and eventually 07-current got the Akebono calipers and the larger 350mm rotors.

Just wish the EBC front brake kit I bought had actually been the right one in the first place (they have since corrected the issue on their website but too late for me), and that the EBC kit for the Akebono's was twice the price as the Bosch. :sick:
