930 Brake Caliper Rebuild

I've been experiencing a brake lockup on the front passenger side of my car, so I'm in the middle of rebuilding the front calipers. I purchased a rebuild kit from Pelican that includes the rubber seals and dust rings, but I need to replace one of the pistons and I've been unable to find a source online. I'm going to call the local Porsche dealership on Monday. I'd appreciate it if anyone can direct me to a source for new pistons.

Regards, Dave

If you have a 1977 or earlier it's easy - http://www.pelicanparts.com/catalog/shopcart/911M/POR_911M_BRKprf_pg11.htm#item10

Of course you and I don't, so I would like to have an answer also!

Before you guys rebuild them. Try this. Compress the pistons back in and bleed the hell out of the system with a pressure bleeder. I mean BLEED THE HELL out of it. Push the pistons out, then back in and bleed again. Most of the time you will find that this is going to cure the stickys from sitting. Not to mention save a few $s in the process.

Now, if the dust covers are torn or you are leaking fluid all bets are off.

I'm not experiencing a problem at this point, just rebuilding as part of track preperation and trying to get my ducks in a row IF I should need pistons.
