You won't find the pistons easily, so once you pop it apart check for pitting, if so get a re-manufacture.

Just go to Car Quest for the rest (sliders, boots, clips).

Price out rebuilt units at Napa. I paid $70-80 a pop for my e36 m3 calipers, sandblasted with new sliders, bleeder, and carrier.

That's pretty cheap considering the cost of the rebuild kits

Rebuild kit front 26$ back $14 The caliper guides are $7 each The guide pin boots are $15 for a pair.

Total to rebuild all 4 calipers = $140 (unless you see pitting on the piston)

Yes the price is Canadian.

These are from autopartsway.ca probably free delivery over a certain $ amount, but call Carquest, ask for a quote on all the bits.

I've never had an issue getting car quest to price match within reason... tell them the online price and that it includes free shipping but you'd rather shop locally. Sometimes they are cheaper right out of the gate.

Good luck man!
