RX-8 rear caliper rebuild

Post by vetracr »

I'm installing RX-8 rear calipers on an 09 HPDE Miata. I bought a pair of rear calipers from a recycler to rebuild. My problem is that the RX-8 caliper rebuild kit only has 2 of the four seals needed to rebuild the caliper (piston seal & dust boot). The seal around the piston adjustment screw and the E brake link shaft seal are not provided. I can't even find these seals listed as parts at Mazda. How do you guys rebuild the calipers????

I have a few sets of rear RX8 calipers in use on our track cars but the issue has not yet come up, we started with new calipers so we have not had to rebuild any yet.
