My left front brake caliper is leaking and I thought it would be best to go ahead and replace all 4 calipers. I know alot of places sell new and rebuilt caliper kits. Is there any downside to getting the rebuilt set and if you guys know the best place to get a kit let me know. Thanks.

You should replace the caliper and pads in pairs, i.e. both the fronts.

Try Vette Brake Products for their o-ring calipers. I believe Ecklers and some other also resell these.

I rebuilt my original calipers with the o- ring rebuild kit from Vette Brakes. It's been about 5 years since and I haven't had any problems or leaks. :thumbsup:

it comes down to how much you want to spend, and/or how much you want to do on your own.

you can "rebuild" them using the kits available, or just buy 4 rebuilt calipers already done. either way you have to remove them and bleed the system.

I would go for a match set of stainless sleeved calipers with a life time warranty. You should do both sides together to get even braking. The calipers are cheap and the stainless sleeved ones last a life time.
