I am also curious about this - I just did my rear brakes (rotors, pads and parking brake shoes) and I noticed the rubber seal on one of the inner pistons was worn out. The piston (or puck) itself is still fine and I tested the operation of it and it works ok. It seems that only the rubber seal has worn out.

Rather than replace the entire caliper ($150) I am looking at this kit as well. As far as I can tell, only the seal requires replacement and this is what this kit ($30) is apparently for.

Is this job difficult? It looks quite straightforward...I don't think replacing a rubber seal qualifies as rebuilding a I wrong? Thanks...
