993 OEM Calipers

I have a seized [open] Caliper [nearside rear] that needs sorting, so do I refurbish all four, or get an after market replacement/upgrade set..?
 
Not looking to Big Red the System, but could do with some reasonably priced suggestions, Brembo / Porsche etc..?

I would recommend an all-round refurb, you presumably want braking to be even .. doesn't sound like you'd pass an MoT at present !
 
It could well be caliper plate lift (refer to Tech Articles), but you'd want to do that all round anyway.
 
Hope this helps, cheers, Maurice

It does sound like the plates that Maurice suggests. It's not rocket science to do yourself. The lift plates will shine up nicely with a wire brush, no need for new ones as the corrosion is between the back of the plate and the caliper. Not really corrosion but electrolytic reaction between dissimilar metals. The seals will cost you about £80 and £10 for 20 or so hex screws that hold the plates and if you're lucky the pistons will be fine but OPC will sort you any new ones if needed. The only tools would be a small compressor, a dot punch and hex tool.
