11. Dip the seals in the cup of blue and let them soak for a little

12. Clean up the pistons and lube up the inside of the caliper.
13. Put the appropriately sized dust boot on the piston and gently pull it down. Keep pulling it down up the boot sits flush the piston. There should be no lip or anything. It should look like this.

14. Dip the piston in your cup of brake fluid and put the piston back into the caliper. I don't have a picture of this but its pretty self evident.
NO PICTURES but here are some tips.
  • Put the piston in STRAIGHT
  • Push the piston in as gently as possible until you feel some resistance
  • Then hold the caliper as if you are hugging it and push the piston in with your fingers tip
  • Apply EQUAL pressure with both hands and it will go..TRUST ME
  • You don't need to use a vice, clamps, or anything. Equal force and be patient. If there's a lot of reistance, take out the piston, clean it, relube it, and try again.
Here's a picture of how to push them back in.

15. Repeat for the remaining pistons and close off the bleeder valves.
16. Move on to the other caliper.
17. Clean up residual brake fluid.
18. Congrats! You're done with the front. Time for the rears.
