unless you meant 120 for the pair in which case just pay 120 its worth buying them new because used ones could seize up sooner then later

Just have them put on Protege5 calipers, the MX6 ones will keep seizing on you, it's just a stupid part of these cars. The Protege5 calipers will swap on no problem and won't give u an issue.

I have them on my car.

P5 calipers have the exact same mechanics inside of them as the mx6 calipers. I know this because I just rebuild mine every time there's a problem. Anyone that thinks they're an upgrade (with respects to reliability is wrong). The only upgrade is the pads for the P5 calipers are slightly bigger than the mx6 pads. This means it's not the calipers that are the upgrade, but rather the bracket the the calipers are mounted to.
