You can buy Orginal equipment parts, which are more expensive, or after market parts, or re manufactured parts. Call a local parts supplier like NAPA, Autozone, etc and check the prices of their replacement parts. Then call a few shops and get a quote on replacing the part with them supply the part, or you supply the part. Ask if they are using OE, Re manufactured or after market parts. You can save a LOT of money by going to a reputable independent shop.

They're usually a little over $100 They can be purchased at any auto parts store You can do it yourself with basic tools and common sense Once it starts clicking, you can't save it by greasing it

My guess is that the seals inside the caliper cylinders have picked up so much dust that it has jammed the pistons, you will need to completely strip down and service the caliper and replace the seals – do not scratch the bore.

Disk brakes aren't worth a flying f*() after about 5 years. Things get corroded and don't release.
