So, the general advice is to never use a hone on the calipers to clean the bore during a rebuild? Bummer. I have one that was a little sticky on one side during the last brake job. I forced it back in with a C-clamp and its doing fine. But the outer rubber seals were nearly shot and I'll want to do a caliper rebuild next time around (new rotors too).

Just to be sure, I'd like to ask: Do you get new pistons in a rebuild kit?

Also, I've seen advice that you should never unbolt the two halves of a caliper. Gee, that makes honing a little difficult. Anyone know why splitting the caliper open shouldn't be done? Leaks problems maybe?

Thanks - this is a great place to learn.
