Where can I find the casting numbers for my calipers? My casting number options are S13WE, and 13WL.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I am looking into the Frozen rotors and pads. One of their questions is "what is your calpier casting number"? I have the 4.7L and 4 piston calipers.

Yeah, this will be the second time i've changed the pads and rotors out. My pads got ate up and my rotors did warp pretty bad with-in the frist few months of owning my truck. This time its not so much the warping, but they just wore out so fast. It’s time for an upgrade, but I cant spare the extra$$$ for new calipers, plus I only have 16” wheels, so that kinda puts a damper on a big brake kit.

Damn alls i need is 10k and i'll be lifted, rimmed up, and decked out BTW, thank you for the complement on my truck Greg I hope to have it done up like yours one day

Are the calipers you're getting upgrades meaning bigger or are they just a different brand and same size? I'm sure you know this already but the gen1 Tundras had an issue with undersized calipers thus causing fast wear and warped rotors. By the time I found this out with my 2000 4wd gen1 the warranty was expired and I did not get the free upgrade so I just spent $99 a year on new stock rotors. No biggie!
