2003 V6 Calipers?

I've got a stock 2003 V6. Do I have PBR dual-piston front calipers?
Thanks!

yes you do, i highly recommend useing an air gun tool to smooth the exterior of them smooth since they are aluminum this is easy, then paint em with high temp paitn and they look amazing.

Wayne the owner is a friend of mine and his shop is only a couple of miles from my house. They also do ceramic coating as well that has a chrome polished look without the hassles of chrome
