02 GT Front Caliper

I found one of my front break calipers is failing. The shop I took it to said you can no longer rebuild them. I was shocked, I have rebuilt them in the past (many years ago) but didn't know you can no longer repair/rebuild your calipers.

Did I miss something? I have to let the shop fix it due to not having a place to work on the car out of the rain.

Had 1967 GT 390
Have 2002 GT, CAI, Flowmaster American Thunder Cat Back, with H pipe.

Sounds like time to upgrade! You can get a whole Wilwood Big Brake kit for like $900 on Summit!

I wish I had the $ to do that, but I don't.
