    The attached PDF explains what I did when I rebuilt my calipers. I hope somebody will find it useful.

    Just a add on,, to help out also. I put a block of wood in front of the pistons for cushion, and then used my blow nozzle to push them out with air pressure from my compressor,,,, gradually,,,, against the wood, don't go nuts with the air pressure it doesn't take much.

    I also used toyota oem seals,, they were very reasonable when I did mine. I guess they still sell them. Most people won't flush their brake fluid on a regular basis which would stop most of this.
