to make a long story short...the piston from the caliper came out of the rubber sleeve in the caliper while i was replacing pads//rotors. anybody know if i can just stick the piston back into the rubber sleeve and bleed the line? or do i have to get a whole new caliper?

EDIT: Chances are you can reinsert the piston and reinstall the dust boot if everything is clean. If dirt got in there (and it probably did) you should disassemble the caliper, clean it out, and reassemble it with a new seal and dust boot. The parts are only a few bucks at your local stealer.
