There are a lot of quality brake parts on the market. I checked our inventory on brake cylinders for a 2001 Cruiser. We offer Dorman, Centric and Mopar. Out of the three, we stock the Dorman. Prices on these vary.

Dorman $11.99 each
Centric $8.99 each
Mopar $65.99 each


Wagner, EIS and Raybestos are 3 more popular brands that are offering quality brake parts.

Rockauto.com has Dorman, AC Delco, Raybestos and Wagner, none are over $10.
Whatever you do, change them soon and replace the shoes if they got wet.

Both Raybestos and Wagner are very good brake parts. Regardless of which ones you purchase, be sure to replace BOTH of them. And if you have to do the shoes, just use some common sense and replace all of the hardware too. Hardware kits are not that expensive and well worth the peace of mind.

Replaced both of mine with Wagner's this past spring after left one sprung a leak for about $10 each.

Install was fairly easy, had both done in half an hour. Lots of room to work in the rear unlike the front.
