Default rebuilding brake calipers

so im broke and dont have 70$ to spend a on each rear caliper, i got lucky and i found the front calipers off a forester in a junk yard.

but the rear i purchased the rebuild kit for 20$

I been searching on here on how to do it and I can only find dyi brembo rebuild.

It looks pretty straight forward on how to do it, basicly not scratch the piston and walls. and i should be good to go.

but of coarse im looking for any tips, like what u guys do while rebuilding them.

i already painted the, red, but il be doing another coating

Are all of your calipers toast? Why are you replacing your front calipers as well?

Search rebuild calipers on google, the brakes on your WRX are made by tokico and other manufacturers use the same style.

well when my wrx was stored in the garage because it had no engine, i decided to kill some time and take off the brakes and paint them, and i painted them over 6 months ago, I just recently put the brakes on about a month ago, so it seems they got stuck. they push but at the same time they go back in. so yea... big bummer =/

Clean everything VERY well
Make sure you put the scraper o ring thing on the piston facing the right way
Lube the piston and scraper o-ring with fresh clean brake fluid when reassembling it.


Its a pretty easy job.
