Default caliper porbs

under what part of my warranty does a bad caliper fall under? i got 63k on my 11 ram now, does this mean i am out of luck, if so what does a front caliper go for?

Unless you have an extended warranty, the caliper repair will be on your dime. I would suggest rockauto.com for pricing.

When you look at the cost of caliper replacement vs. warranty cost (and no guarantee the warranty even covers brakes), replacing the caliper makes more sense.

Where are you located, If in Canada Dodge would replace this no charge as goodwill because you are just over the 60,000 kilometer mark.
In my opinion if you are going to do one why not do both at the same time

The ability to goodwill repairs varies from dealer to dealer. If the dealer declines or isn't authorized to goodwill repairs, call Chrysler customer service.
