Did anyone rebuild a front brake caliper in house conditions? Cuz drivers side is catching faster that passenger side and i thought rebuilding it and cleaning might help. Also thinking bleeding the system. Any thoughts? Thanks ahead.

If the pistons aren't pitted or cracked then rockauto sells rebuild kits.
I won't instruct you how to or tell you to do it for liability reasons.
But unless you have $100+ calipers
your catching thing is probslly in the slides

I rebuild the rears on the zx2 because they are rare/expensive

Make sure you check the caliper pins and the brake hose before getting a new caliper, and also if it is the caliper it would be best to get a new one

I agree with these guys. You need to disassemble your brakes and inspect the slides, hoses, and all the hardware before you go off buying/rebuilding a caliper. A good visual inspection is always the best place to start.
