Get new calipers or get a rebuild kit?

A rebuild consists of removing the pistons, honing the piston bores, replacing the seals and dust boots. Do-able, but not worth the risk screwing it up if you don't have the skills, not to say that you don't.

Last year I replaced my caliper. Got a remanned one from one of the big parts chain stores...I think it was right around $60 with an exchange.

Shop around on the phone first, prices varied.
