Well gang!

I got my rear brakes rebuilt myself.

Basically there is just one square cut O-ring seal and a weather seal. But the biggest thing to becareful of is to make sure to fit the piston to the bore. For some reason my pistons were binding up at the last 25% of inserting. so I used some sandpaper and lightly sanded the pistons to fit. Then assembled as typical. I used a spray bottle with some brake fluid to spray down the pistons before assembly. This would pre-lube the seals it ease the assembly of the pistons.

But my rear brakes are no longer binding or dragging any longer! I cost me a total of $32 dollars to rebuilt the rear calipers. Instead of $240 for the 2 new calipers... :woot:
