Is the fluid more than 2 years old?

Pads, rotors and flex lines aren't a caliper rebuild. I thought you were concerned with the condition of your calipers before your trip.

No idea. I only know the history of the car 2 years back, and all that was done to it in those 2 years were oil changes, a mass air flow sensor and that's it. He did put 15k miles on it in that time. Not knowing I would rather have the calipers rebuilt/replaced to be safe.

This isn't something I feel comfortable doing. I only did it once in high school and remember it being a pain on dual piston calipers, let alone 4 piston.
