    seems like a trashy thing to do but I mean if it saves you a buck and they take it.... Why not go to a parts yard and grab the cheapest calipers you can get in the yard and turn those in?

    I kept my calipers because just in case

    I just ate the core charge when i ordered mine from Rock. Figured shipping them back would cost me and then if they didnt accept them, I would be out of luck. Also figured i would just hold on to them and if i ever sell the car, i would just swap them back and sell the Brembo's separately.

    Its trashy to turn in good working calipers as cores but going to the junkyard to grab junk to turn in isnt? Your logic is flawed..

    I think you’re going from one extreme to another. I’d be turning in lower mileage Focus calipers for other new Focus calipers. While they’re not the exact same, the fact that Ford values both the ST and RS cores the the exact same $50 implies they value the cores the same.

    Pretty sure he was being sardonic...subtleties tend to get missed when just typing into these forums. Why send back your perfectly good ST calipers when you can just grab some $15 junkers, still sending back a different caliper; the ethical dilemma. Either way, no one is losing sleep over it, lets just move on

    Sounds good and agree

    On a related note, has anyone ever sold their rotors/calipers/brackets/pads/hoses and got enough for them to make it worth their while? I have a ‘13 so my fronts are the less desirable setup, but I don’t know if people with non-STs actuallly buy this stuff.

    At the and of the day I may just follow the lead of @Nick balwin86 and just hold onto the original stuff. If I’m feeling froggy later when I go to sell the car (no immediate plans) I can swap back to the original stuff and sell the RS stuff separately and probably recoup a decent amount of the money.
