WJ Brake Calipers

I'm looking to order some brakes soon and notice that everywhere I look they mention ATE and Akebono calipers. I don't have a clue which one I have, how can I tell? I understand it was a dealer swap at one point, but I don't know if mine ever got it.

Also, what your guy's experiences with brakes? Which do you recommend, which do you advise to steer clear of?

Thanks!

ATE AKA teve's Known to cause brake vibes when u hit the brake peddle at high speeds and warp rotors

Akebono's are the ones you want. Email Or PM Kolak@aol.com or Kolak

He sells a Caliper upgrade.

I'm not looking for new Calipers (I think), I'm just looking for a way to look at them and say "oh they're Akebono" or "oh, they're ATE." The website (wjjeeps.com) is taking f o r e v e r to load...
