In past builds I've used the common GM truck single piston front caliper. They are a nice compact size, have plenty of power and they can be had at the local auto parts house pretty cheap; it's now time to step up to a dual piston caliper.

Is there a dual piston compatriot to that single piston GM caliper?

Don't care what brand OE it is from, just want the same specifics: relatively common, inexpensive and can be had at the local auto parts stores.

What have you guys used?

Maybe I am over thinking this and should be happy with the single piston GM stuff?

BTW: These are for vehicles in the 3500 to 50000lb range.

Those single and dual piston calipers have a lot going for them and GM has done a pretty good job at making them keep floating under harsh conditions.
