Rebuilding your Brake Calipers Video
So I found this great video on rebuilding your brake calipers. It goes through removing the the dust boots, seals and pistons and replacing them.


Seems pretty straight forward.

Anyone have any thoughts or additional suggestions??

I just rebuilt mine with the RB dust boots, seals and SS pistons. I also added some Hard Brake Titanium backing plates to go with my new Cobalt Friction XR-1 racing pads. I might be headed to the track Monday to try it all out.:headbang:
