I had flushed my fluid a couple of years prior to doing a recent caliper rebuild. There were no leaks, but the dust boots were cracked. When I pulled the pistons, I found jelly on the back sides and in the calipers. This stuff had been in there a long while. No way had the previous owner been flushing the fluid. Even my flushing was not enough to get this stuff out. While I had everything down, I replaced the hoses too. What a difference! Pedal feel is like a new car.
