      I have been going through the brakes on my ‘01 GTS.  I found the drivers side rear caliper is leaking and needs to be rebuilt.

      Does anyone know if there are instructions on how to rebuild?  Or is there anyone that they can be sent to that rebuilds them?

      Back in the day, Dodge sold a rebuild kit.  It’s been a long time since I fooled with one, but I think the 2001 Service Manual was my guide. Of course the 2002 manual would also work.

      In the 2001 service manual I was not able to find the steps on how to rebuild the caliper.  However, I was able to find that Centric makes a kit with all the necessary parts to rebuild the 2001-2002 rear calipers.  The Centric part number is 14361026.  You can also find the same kit part number listed under StopTech since StopTech is a part of Centric.

      Since I found the parts, I decided to take the caliper apart.  The rebuild was super easy.  Using the OEM tool kit 27113 for servicing disk brake calipers, made it very easy to start threading the piston back onto the parking brake screw inside the body of the caliper.   Without this tool kit, it was impossible to get the piston back in.

      I did not take any pictures to document the steps, but next time I will.

      We’ll be waiting for pics in about another 15-20  years. You promised!
