Sure the o-rings are the wrong size? I'm sure you'll have to stretch them pretty good to get them to go on. You could always go to a place that sells o-rings and get the correct size Viton o-rings if you think they arent the right size.

As cheap as calipers are why are you rebuilding them instead of replacing them? Are they alot more expensive than most calipers are?

An expensive caliper to me is anything more than $25. A kit is cheap but unless you have the tools to check everything out, bore it if needed, dip/blast it clean, etc then its probably best to just get a new caliper...

brakes

i live a few miles from fort leonard wood and prices around here for anything are high,the cheapest new/rebuilt calipers i have found are $39.99 each, all i did was mess up one of the rings trying to get the piston back in,the rings that are in kit are way to big.thanks for your responce,this car has been nothing but a night mare since day one,ill never own another one.

Did an online search and $40 seems to be a good price for the rear calipers. Rear calipers are always more expensive (probably due to the parking brake in them).
