99 OBW Rear Caliper.....

They are getting pretty rusty and need to be replaced.

I may consider those if I can't find the Subaru part. I have a mity vac brake bleeder so doing them by myself isn't an issue.

My friend's legacy wagon calls for 26239AA010 in the rear (drums). They are $8.72 each!!! I wonder if they will fit.
On a side note, does anyone know what comes in the caliper rebuild kits from Subaru? If those kits have the bleeders then I will just buy those. The calipers are getting tired, and they are about $150 each.

I am not so sure about rebuilding the ones that are on there. Sounds like another never ending PITA project waiting to happen.

The Bendix rebuilds are probably OE factory calipers someone else turned in with new rubber and lube installed. I haven’t needed to replace them on the ‘ru, but had good luck with rebuilds on an ’85 Toyota truck. Might want to clean ’em up and paint them before installation.
Loaded calipers are another option worth looking at, depending on the pads they put in.
