Anybody else finding this? I checked a month ago for front calipers on 2012, none locally. Today none locally and only 1 in canada? Have to order from u.s. which also has a shortage they say. Wow. With how many f150s running the same calipers, what is everyone doing for replacement?

Just did replaced my brake pads No problem finding them in the Northwest. Amazon and the local auto parts stores all had ample supply.

Get your existing calipers rebuilt.
I've done it a few times when restoring old cars.

They were like new when done correctly.

Not that I recommend Canadian Tire for anything other than hockey tape, did you try there? Napa? Bumper to Bumper?

Good luck!
They are in stock at rockauto, just get standard shipping by USPS, dont use UPS and you wont pay any duty on them.
