Need to replace mine since the parking brake function isn't working on them anymore.

Does anyone know of a source to get OE replacements OTHER than RockAuto. I'd get them from there, but by the time you factor in the shipping back of the cores it gets pricey.

I'd also be interested in alternatives anyone has found. Something from another car that fits and still maintains the parking brake. Please let me know.

I got a set from brakepadwholesale.com
Don't recommend them

There's a place in stoney creek that can rebuild
I think it's john Stewart power brake or something like that

Found the link

I know this is from summer, but I thought I would comment for anyone else looking for the rear brake calipers. Rockauto has a contract for the return shipping. If you go with that return shipper sending the core back in was less than $10. That means your getting most of the core price back. I was happy with what I got from Rockauto for my rear calipers. What ever you do don't waste time trying to rebuild the rear calipers if the e-brake part doesn't work. The rear slot on inside wears and I could not find a replacement for that part. In addition the brake piston itself will most likely need to be replaced.
