Does anybody have a link to a guide for rebuilding the calipers? One of mine arrived in less-than-ideal condition, but all of the internals and the piston are in pretty good shape. It's plenty salvageable for a simple rebuild, but I'm having a really hard time taking the #$!%ing thing apart.

I've heard all right things about Powerstop. Just be sure you get nice brake pads and smooth rotors. None of that slotted/drilled crap. Unless you're drag-racing regularly, they're a waste of money. Nice, basic rotors are all you need.
