Caliper Question

So I have a '00 GC that has the brake roughness/pedal pulsation (TSB 05-003-02B), and I am trying to determine if the calipers I have on this are the Teves or the Akebono style.

I understand one should be able to discern by the color, but the current color (rust brown) doesnt help.. I think they are the Teves, but want to be as sure as possible. Dont want to spend the money if I dont need to..

Can anyone that has replaced their calipers shed some light? Thanks for your help!!!

Here are some pics of my calipers:

those are the Teves, you can tell by the wire retainer (thats the weird shaped thin wire that goes along the side), if youve ever taken your calipers off youll know what Im talking about cause its a pain to put that thing back on. Definitely replace them, I did and it made a huge difference.

Look like the old ones to me
New on left, old on right. The ends with the J shape match and the center section with the larger flat piece match up.
