    Brake caliper rebuild kits

    Anyone know if RockAuto carries front rebuild kits that are verified to fit 2nd gen VR-4's? One of my front calipers is getting a little lazy so I thought I'd rebuild them both. Should I do the rears as well while I'm at it?

    I would really appreciate it if anyone would confirm if RockAuto carries kits that fit a 2nd gen vr-4, tried searching 3si but couldn't get a definite answer
    Also, do these kits come with the seal you need when splitting a caliper?

    Before anyone says go OEM, last I ordered from mitsu it took 7 weeks to get here. RockAuto usually deliver within 6-7 days (I'm overseas). Local mitsu dealer charges over $300 (one caliper) for just the seal rebuild kit, would like to avoid that.

    Whoah, 7 weeks and 300 bucks?! When I rebuilt mine I was weary to purchase the sets from RockAuto because I couldn't get a solid answer on which to get for my car. I ended up calling Cherry Hill (cherryhilltriplexparts.com ) and the guy on the phone took care of me. It's not cheap but definitely not 300 bucks. You're probably looking at about 100 for all four rebuild kits. Try giving RockAuto a shot but dont bother calling them as it took almost a month for me to receive a response AFTER I had finished the rebuilds.

    I got Centric rebuild kits dirt cheap for my 1G. Not the best in terms of the dust boots slipping off the PC'd caliper, but they worked.

    Woops, I should have stated that initially. I rebuilt my 1G brakes as I couldn't justify spending all of the extra funds on going to 2Gs. Are the pistons any different amongst the two dimensions wise?

    I need this info as well. I have a set of front 2gtt calipers but one is bad. Do the rebuild kits come with new dust boots? mine are toast from using track pads.
