anyone have aftermarket calipers on their grand am? I have put 2 sets of GM front calipers on my car in 6 months. and the ticking and creaking keeps coming back even with brand new calipers so I want to get aftermarket ones that wont do this or break my wallet.

anyone know where i could order one.

Something isnt right if you've replaced the calipers alone twice in 6 months. So dont think replacing the calipers again would fix it....probally.

Ticking sound could also be from the brake pads themself. The spring thing on the pad could not be bent out enough or not there at all, therefore its just bouncing back and forth against the rotor.

Hows your rotor's doing?

The creaking is not the caliper. Its the metal clips that are in the caliper that help hold the pad in place. You need to replace those. When you put the new ones in, the clips need lots of lube on them. Been there, done that!!
