Looking to rebuild calipers on a TRD BiG Brake kit

Hello I purchased my truck with the big brake kit already on it, and I need to replace the seals around the caliper Pistons. My right side inner Pistons are not moving freely causing excessive wear on the pad. Has anyone rebuilt the caliper and where can I find the seals? Thanks

Re: Looking to rebuild calipers on a TRD BiG Brake kit

Rebuilding normal car and truck calipers or wheel cylinders isn't something you really do on modern vehicles. Race vehicles, Yes. I would recommend you find a race shop that specializes in brakes and have them rebuild them for you. They will have all the proper tools to pull them apart, check and clean up the bores if needed and fit them with the correct matching seals. If you have a very good machine shop they could probably do it but I would make sure to vet the crap out of them first before trusting them with my $2k+ brakes. For the money and trouble I would probably just go the race shop route, its more in their wheelhouse.
