Rebuilding Brake Calipers
I've rebuilt my rear caliper before, It's straight forward, and the rebuild parts are quite very reasonable. The contents of the factory rear rebuild kit are in error, so I've listed the correct parts for the front and rear caliper rebuilds. This data is about a year old so
I'm unsure if prices have changed. Rebuilding the fronts should be a breeze.

BTW if you're rebuilding a rear caliper watch for the slotted guide pin head - it looks like a screw head. Don't try to twist this or you my damage the piston assembly (fortunately I was patient and studied this before applying force).
