    Hey all, I'm doing brakes on a 99 Accord I4 sedan, and I can't for the life of me find replacements for the rear caliper bracket bushing/boot. The OEM caliper overhaul kit includes them but also a bunch of other seals I don't need. The usual Autozone, Advance, etc. don't even seem to carry rear boots for the sedan. Anyone ever found them?

    That's the right part but none of those are the right ones for a 4-cylinder sedan. I couldn't find any aftermarket version of them, and had to pay over 50 bucks at the dealer for two sets of the caliper rebuild kit. Here's some pictures of them, and pressing them into the brackets.

    I guess it's too late now, but how about THESE?

    No dice. Those are all just rubber boots, and there's no way to replace them on these bushings, they're permanently attached.

    I'm really curious as to what bushings these are then. On the v6 all 4 corners are just slide pins with the rubber boots. No bushings on the caliper itself that I know (or remember) of.

    That's what the fronts are on mine. On the rear, Honda decided to be different. The boot is in the bushing that gets pressed into the bracket, and then slips over a lip on the guide pin, which is threaded for a bolt that goes through the caliper.
