Rear Brake Calipers

So recently my brakes started grinding, been to damn cold to check it till tonight. So I took the wheels off, passenger side caliper came off no issue, driver side was stuck. Finally get it off and find that my piston was cracked, broken into 3 pieces. How so I know if I have the Phenolic pistons or standard? They are non magnetic if that is any indication.

So what's the next step? Do you swap out the caliper or re-build? And once your working on one side will you do both sides ? Good Luck !

Thanks! Yea, Im just going to replace both and be done with it. Saw many posts where they only replaced 1 and had issues with the other shortly thereafter. Might as well just do both and not have to worry about it. Im debating on wether or not to replace the brake hoses and go with braided at this time or not, dont really have the extra but, again, don't want to have to deal with it later if something happens.
