Caliper rebuild kit

Had the intention of doing my pads/discs today, got the wheels off, started stripping everything down (even got the dreaded disc retaining screws out on the first attempt) only to find both the rubber boots on the driver side sliding pins needed replacing, and one pin wasn't looking too good either. Then had a close inspection of the main caliper piston and saw that also had a couple of small tears.

Where is the best place to get the rebuild parts from? I see theres 100s on ebay, but not sure how quality/price stack up against honda (if honda even sell the small parts to rebuild).

Any help is appreciated... needs to be finished for my MOT Friday

I would love to Flashy.. but I have a feeling I need both rears doing, the other side is poor condition as well. I didn't bother stripping it down but just going to guess that it needs the same attention
