So I decided to go outside and take the caliper apart, when I got the outside piece off the caliper and the caliper housing seal on the bottom side fell right out. So I called the local foreign parts dealer to see if I can get the part. They said the can order it for me, but I have to buy the whole caliper repair kit which is $17. Sucks I need a little 10cent piece lol, but ha that sure beats $300 that I seen some calipers going for. Thanx again downhiller for the help, much appreciated
