Default LS430 Caliper Repair Kit - has anyone fitted this?

The brakes on my 2004 LS430 have really weakened. At first I assumed front pads, so replaced those using the excellent guide posted on here. But I realised the old ones were not all that worn - and the rears are also OK.

Master cylinder seems fine, so I'm betting it's the front caliper pistons as a couple of other people have had the same problem. I've got the front caliper repair kit, but wondered if anyone on here has experience of fitting it and can offer any tips or advice.

There is a very good caliper rebuild guide for the original LS at http://www.lexls.com/tutorials/brake/fbcaliper.html but I don't know how similar the caliper design is to the 430 calipers.

I was hoping for some tips on how to remove the piston from the caliper or anything that anyone found out while doing the job.

Any help much appreciated
