Brakes International in the UK also do a rebuild kit, branded Budweg. It's £8 for the seals, and a further £11 for a piston, bringing the total to £19.

They also have bleed nipples and guide pins, though I understand many of you on here greatly prefer the Volvo guide pins. Links to follow:

Seals
Piston
Pins
Bleed nipple

Parts Monster (again the UK) also offers a full rebuild kit, minus guide pins, for £19.99 - Click.

The same site also does master cylinder rebuild kits, for £12.99 - here.

All three sites are reputable, and I have had a caliper rebuilt with Budweg seals performing flawlessly for 20 months now - since I got the car!

I believe so

For the rears, you will need the internal O Rings too, since you have to separate the caliper halves to be able to hone the caliper cylinder clean.

I looked into this and they ship to US in 7-10 days for 15 bucks

Very cheap

If anyone wants to get in on a group buy let’s post here please

You can actually get the VAT back but I’m a dual citizen with lots of people in the UK so I feel obliged to pay the VAT.
