Looks like I need to replace my front calipers. When purging to flush out the brake system the front left only gives me a dribble and the right front I cant pull any fluid through it.

When looking I see there are 2 styles, Forward Mount and Rear Mount.

There they have Semi-Loaded but I don't know what is different about these and just plain ones?

How do I tell what mine are?

Not sure about the forward / rear mount..... CJs never had rear disc brakes, that one has me stumped. Loaded I do believe means they come with the mounting pins. I bought loaded thinking that meant piston and seals...... nope. Mounting pins.

The front brakes come in forward or rear mount.

I would have thought they would come with piston and seals, guess I had better look them up also Thanks

They all come with piston and seals....... I erroneously assumes only the loaded did. Loaded just refers to the mounting pins.
