The rebuild kits can go either way but if your is leaking around the piston it should be a easy rebuild

Rebuilding calipers is not too hard, provided you have a manual to guide you along....
Most times the oil seals go bad, and leaks make the brakes run like junk, a rebuild possible new pistons and new rotor and pad should make a difference. The only thing you may find to be extremely tricky are the screws and bolts that may have rusted....this has often become for me a two or three day job as opposed to a two hour job.

Actually, your 93 caliper and master cylinder provides superior
braking in comparison to the newer models. Honda went for
light over power in subsequent years and the rear brakes come
up short. Like others have said, a rebuild kit and some quality
bench time and you'll be good to go.

This is a good idea. The rotor from a 2000 CR or later will bolt
on with just a little grinding on the carrier and yield much better
power. It's the same diameter rotor Team Honda used in the
early to mid 90s.

thanks for the good advice. i will order a rebuild kit for the caliper.
i looked at some rotors on ebay, some look real cheap but not too sure.

anybody recommend a good all around rotor. a place to buy from or brand name, are the chinese ones good enough ?
