    That turbo city place is showing 2 mirages with both calipers. One 2014 and one 2019 G4. 20 miles away.. I bet if you called and said you had a 2015 they'd say they don't have. Say 2014 or 2019 g4?? They don't have an interchange for calipers and probably don't know what will fit so just say don't have.

    These guys are showing a few from a 2014 as well in Fontana 32miles away http://www.danstruckandauto.com/

    I keep forgetting it probably takes 100x longer to get anywhere out there compared to tiny town Edmonton lol. I can make it from my house, across the city and then drive 190miles and it'll take 3 hrs. If I leave at 5:30pm.

    Rebuilt calipers are a very mixed bag. I've seen more problems with them than I've seen good ones that lasted without issues. Given that Mitsu hasn't changed the caliper design at all... I'd just source a low-mileage pair of calipers from the newest wrecked car you can find. I'd replace them both, that way you know they're both equally fresh. Good to go for a long time.

    (I know I'm too late, but that's what I'd do.)
    Simplify and add lightness.

    I wouldn't recommend getting the drilled rotors. High quality/expensive one has formed holes not drilled. I have slotted rotors which are great if anyone was wondering.

    So, according to Mitsubishi the '14-'15 cars (4605B001/4605B002) and '17-'20 cars (4605B003/4605B004) use different calipers?

    The calipers on the '14 should work fine.

    Nice catch. I wonder what the difference is? Unless something is different where the brake line bolts on, I'd still use 17+ if installing both. Piston size may be off or they felt like being ford and just update the part number to screw with people.
