Brake Caliper Pistons Overextended

Recommended Posts

So I went to change my brake pads on my 2011 CRV, and stupidly pushed the brake pedal when the calipers were off the rotor.  I overextended the pistons.  I struggled to get one of them in, but then it did, and started leaking brake fluid.  The other one, I can't get in.  Any thoughts whether I need to replace the calipers, get a rebuild kit, or if they'll be fine???  I see on other forums that calipers are cheap.  Well they aren't here.  $333 a piece.

Thanks in advance.
