They are very easy to do. I will help you out if you need it.

i don't know so much that its a defect with the calipers as much as it is with moisture getting in the system.

Moisture by way of condensation I believe enters your calipers and creates surface rust on piston walls causing them in time to start sticking. JTSVP has wildwood brake fluid which is suppose to prevent or be more resistant of allowing moisture to develop on the brake system

If you're replacing the pistons then it is too cheap...For $16 all you're getting are the seals.

I paid $18 for the seal kits from my local parts store.

Pretty sure it's $16 per piston, there are 4 pistons per caliper. You need the seal kit on top of that.

My 10 is my dd, I should be able to do this in a day, right? Do I have to replace all pistons? Or maybe just clean everything up? New to this brake rebuilding. Debating on getting the semi loaded at rock auto so I don't have to deal with any setbacks.

You can do it in an hour including painting. Two hours letting paint dry
I would just put new seals and pistons in it. Very seldom are there cylinder issues in the caliper.

Yes you can do it in a day. I would plan on replacing the pistons, but you can rebuild them with cleaned pistons (last resort). I had to reuse two pistons on one caliper because the dealership didn't have another two and I need it fixed that day.

I had to use an air compressor to get the pistons out of the housings. Also keep in mind you'll have to bleed/service the brake system after doing the rebuild. I picked up a Motive power fill pump that makes it easy, fast, and a one man job. Some prefer the Mityvac.

Ordered parts for rebuilding 2 front calipers, hoping to do this in a week or two. I'll start a new thread when I start the project.

Definitely not a hard task. This was the first issue I had with my truck. I ended up parking it for a few minutes and then going in reverse to get the caliper to unfreeze which worked. It didn't lock up again but I put new seals and pistons on order. I took my time and I believe the install took all of an hour or so.
