If you don't want to do the drill mod yourself, take it to a good shop. I had mine done years ago, it is totally worth the effort and hassle to do it!

I had an old caliper that got stuck. So I bought a reman caliper. That was stuck too! So I got these new calipers, and that fixed it for me. PSA: not all reman parts work as good as new parts.
