I have had a completely different experience with Autozone rebuilt calipers for an Audi A4 that I used to own - I had to replace the same rear caliper three times, all leaking from a seal where the parking brake actuator went through the body of the caliper - so they were obviously skimping on or forgetting to replace some part. Yes, they were all covered by warranty, but my time is worth something and the car was out of service for days at a time waiting for replacements. Eventually sold the car, so don't know if the third time was a charm.
As Paul from Palmyra is questioning, they rusted like CorTen steel after a few weeks.
