Possibly found brake problem on accident???

So to start I've been hearing a squeaking noise coming from the rear of my truck . It definatly sounded like brake problem. So this morning I went and bought some brake grease a new rear pads. I was out in the driveway with the tires off and the truck jacked up, my neighbor comes over and says I'll do a side and you do a side. We changed both rear pads and greased the slides. Get it all bolted back up and I take the wife to the grocery store. Still squeaking and strong brake burning smell. Get home take it back apart and he had put the outside pad back on upside down so the top of the pad was dragging on the rotor F*#^. I sent the wife to get new pads and for some reason I decided to start it up and hit the brakes just to check the caliper . When I hit the brakes one of the pistons came out way farther the the other . I tries to push it back in and brake fluid came squirting out and the whole piston popped all the way out. Now I can't decide was the caliper bad or did I break it? When I was change inn the pads I noticed the pads on my side were worn down to almost nothing while the pads on the side with the now broken caliper were about 55% intact.

I have a squeak in the front but the pads have lots of meat left. Where do you get aftermarket calipers?

I was just hoping I didn't blow the caliper out from hitting the brakes when the caliper was off the rotor

Well of course you didn't. You just blew the piston out of the cylinder. No big deal. Just relieve the pressure and put it back in. First take it all the way out and inspsect the piston and the cylinder for wear/damage/corrosion. If you find any replace the caliper. If not put the piston back in, replace the boot if necessary and go on your way. Don't buy a new caliper just because you pushed the piston out.


Don't forget to bleed the brakes.
