Disc Brake Calipers

I have priced rebuilt calipers with local shops and the price is either $50-$60 or $110-$160. The main difference seems to be pads vs. no pads. The dealership wants $120 (I suppose those are new ones).
So, I am asking for suggestions.
Also - my brain is telling me to replace them in pairs. Is that wise or unneccesary and why?

Also might want to try S-Wing's Stuff. Subaru specialists, used parts. I believe this is their URL: www.s-wingsstuff.com.

I think I will try rebuilding them. All I have to do is find a kit. I think all I need is the seal and dust boot around the piston. It's worth a shot and is cheaper. Otherwise, I'll go to the P&P or S-wings.

and if the piston isnt trashed, and still fits in the caliper like it is new, the shops get payed big bucks for replacing rubber!
if your piston is smooth, and not jagged and mared its ok.
