    Its me again :)

    How dificult is it to rebuild brake calipers or should I just take them in to be fixed by a shop ? or just buy rebuilt and trade in the cores ? I beleve they are mini truck calipers see other post.

    Auto Zone has these for $40 rebuilt plus $40 core. It's not worth your trouble to do it yourself. It's also nice to have the warranty. :D
