Rear Brakes - replacing pads and unseizing a caliper...

Wondering how much this kinda thing should cost. I've done a little bit of research and such but wanted to hear from the rest of you if you've had this work done on your ride.

It's pretty easy to do it yourself. You'll need access to an air compressor to blo out the pistons in the caliper. Buy yourself some new O-rings and gaskets for the calipers and some new pads. some new brake fluid, and perhaps a brake master cylinder rebuild kit for both the front and back. easy-peasy. and a hundred and fifty bucks or so.

I've used a grease gun to get the piston unstuck. A little messy but not really that bad. It'll grab right on to the bleeder.
