    Juicy 5 Caliper Rebuild Kit

    My rear Juicy 5 has been having issues with the pistons. I took the caliper apart, and the pistons and seals are going to need to be replaced. Looking online, I can't find a piston and seal kit from that doesn't have a million other bolts and parts I don't really need. Does anyone know of a way I could get just the pistons and seals, or am I stuck buying the $40 kit with a bunch of stuff I'll never use? I see more basic kits for Juicy 3's, but they don't use the same pistons, do they?

    You need to search for service kit not rebuild.

    I'm really looking for something like this: Avid Juicy 05-07 Pressure Foot Kit. My brakes are 2008. Were there any real changes made from 2007 to 2008?

    My experience with CRC is that shipping will take less than a week. Faster then some US suppliers.

    Doh, I missed the part about the piston.

    It looks like CRC isn't an option any more. Does anyone know if the pistons from 2005-2007 are the same pistons as those from 2008+? These seem to be more available.
