Best place on internet to buy new rear brake callipers?

Fed up of the rear callipers on my 172 Cup constantly sticking and decided to get new callipers. Can anybody recommend where to try for that? No second hand/breaker yards, has to be new. Cheers.

Thanks Pete.

AutoParts Warehouse Ltd sells new rear calipers at £66 each. Anybody familiar with them?

Pretty sure. It's the only thing left to try.

Upon jacking the car up, rear wheels will turn fine with hands but after applying the brake pedal and releasing, the rear wheels are really stiff to turn. If you turn the wheels backwards by hand, it frees up. After screwing the rear caliper pistons in and out a couple of times with WD40, it's fine but just comes back again a few days later.

Problem is isolated to the rear of the car.
