I will very soon find out how easy brake caliper
rebuilding is...  I've got to do the rears on my
Corrado, maybe this afternoon even.

I was able to order the kits through Autozone for 5+3
shipping each.  If you don't live smack in the middle
of Ford and Chevy Truck-land, you might be able to
just pick them up!

I haven't picked up the kits yet, but I think it is
just an O-ring and rubber boot.
