These brakes are about to go out the window!!!!

A while back while swaping out the rear axels on the 951, I noticed one of the pads was completly worn while the other three were brand new. This lead me to believe the pistons were sticking. Looking long and hard to find a rebuild kit, I ended up getting $100 worth of dust seals and covers for two calipers from Pelican parts. I got the problem caliper off the car and after I removed all four pistons realized they were not stuck at all.

The problem, the PO used what appears to be an anti-squeal agent that dried and collected behind the little metal bracket that holds the two caliper halves together. It actually collected so much that they bent the bracket preventing pad from moving in. Here is my delema, it looks like either someone or time rounded out the alen heads that hold the bracket in and I cannot get the crap out to allow the pad to move freely.

And finally, the question. Does anyone know of a shop or business that can rebuild calipers, for a reasonable price. I cannot afford to pay $350 for a new calipers and am not going pay $200 for used ones. Any suggestions????

What I would do is use an ectractor to pull the alen bolts out. I also would do is just buy the rebuild kit and do the caliper.
