Does anyone know how to replace the piston in the brake caliper?  I replaced rotors and pads today and notoced the postons on my rear calipers (both sides) are worn uneven.

I've done it by removing the brake hose and then using compressed air to blow out the piston.

Have someone gently press the brake pedal with the caliper off the rotor and slide the piston out of the bore. If you take them completely off the jeep to rebuild them you can do it this way. http://video.search.yahoo.com/video/play;_ylt=A2KLqIN5FcZR7nsA2Wr8w8QF;_ylu=X3oDMTBvbWZjYWNkBHNlYwNjZC1leHAEc2xrA2V4cAR2dGlkAw--?p=site%3Ayoutube.com+how+to+remove+brake+caliper+piston&vid=0fa30b492906443ff89e8217058b52c0&l=1%3A21&turl=http%3A%2F%2Fts1.mm.bing.net%2Fth%3Fid%3DV.4847563115988272%26pid%3D15.1&rurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3D1jp2OCidBV4&tit=Brake+caliper+piston+removal+trick&c=2&sigr=11a390sr9&back=http%3A%2F%2Fsearch.yahoo.com%2Ftablet%2Fs%3Fei%3DUTF-8%26p%3Dsite%253Ayoutube.com%2Bhow%2Bto%2Bremove%2Bbrake%2Bcaliper%2Bpiston&sigb=1313j11a2&ct=p&age=0&&tt=s
