: has anyone performed a caliper rebuild using the kit from turnermotorsports? i just ordered the kit and want to know what i need and how difficult it will be
: thanks

The only difficult part is to get the piston back in the bore with the dust boot in place. The kit should have some instructions with it, it tells you to pre-install the boot on the piston and then install the boot to the caliper before pushing the piston into the bore. I did it backwards as that worked best for me. We will have a write up on the procedure along with pictures in the near future, not sure when. I'll post it when it's done.
