Where to buy rear brake caliper rebuild kit 3 Years, 4 Months ago  
My rear caliper is dragging and I'm going through pads like they're made from butter.
So, I want to take the whole shebang apart and thoroughly clean and rebuild it, but here's my problem...

Where can I get a rebuild kit for the caliper? I've google it a few times, but I'm not getting the warm fuzzies yet that I've found the correct kit.


Any leads/info/suggestions highly appreciated!
