Caliper Piston

I went to do a simple brake job this morning and after I pulled off the caliper I noticed the piston is chipped. Has anyone replaced the piston or do you have to replace the whole caliper? Are any special tools needed?

Thanks in advance.

Do yourself a favor, replace them as a pair and spend the couple extra dollars and buy ones with steel pistons in them.

Thanks. I went on and replaced the caliper. It drives fine so I am not sure why you would replace them in pairs. I can see pads and rotors but not calipers.

For me it's just habit. I always have done the same thing to both side when doing brakes.
