Rockauto sells a couple kits for my car, it's just a boot and a piston seal. Can not attest to quality

thats my worry
It's not worth a rebuild with poor or questionable quality, I'd just get rebuilt ones and safe the effort
besides I assume the bolts are pitted and don't want to take them apart and then have to place another order.

What year is your car? Years of New England winters, you maybe better off replacing with good after markets like a Raybestos or Delco. If the original has any rust, you may get leaks after installing new seals.

Good point. It's a 2005
Even on the worst calipers I've seen the bolts get pitted but the seals protect the channel itself so it can be rebuilt. I do most of the maint myself and would never push a bolt back in that was not clean and free from pits.
Or I could get rebuilt OE, likely better quality but they may not have been as careful as me
Or I could do as you say and get a brand new aftermarket.

that may be the best option. thanks

I've installed rebuilt calipers on several different vehicles and I have never had a problem with any of them. I've also rebuilt several myself with no issues but only when I could not find a rebuilt one at a good price.
