rebuild kit isn't much at all, prolly 30 bucksish. if you need a new piston it'll be more, but generally you don't unless you have wear marks on it- scratchs and that, if that is the case you might need a new caliper housing to to get the bore of the old one cleaned up inside, and so if that is the case i'd highly recomnend you just do exchange for a reconditioned caliper - be cheaper and easier if that's the case. byut as said it depends on the condition of your stuffed one.
there not hard to do, although i havn't done the front ones, i recently did my rears and figured it out easy enough for a newbie!

yeah i think i'll have to do them eventually, but they've let go a bit since yesterday arvo.
it drives and brakes better, but i will still have to fix it, im just real broke atm.
