    Hi all,

    Had problems with both rear calipers with regards to the handbrake mechanism seizing - the garage cannot wind the pistons back as both calipers basically look in a mess.

    anyway, I've bought some recon's and picked them up today, and hopefully the old carriers will be fine.

    Question is, is it worth getting a new slider kit so that they can be fresh with the new calipers, and if so what size 8 or 10mm will I need?

    Not sure I can check the size as old calipers are still on the car.

    Cheers
