Rear Brake Caliper

Hey guys,

I just had my bike in for an oil change and the service guy pointed out that my rear brake caliper is bent causing one pad to grip more. He also said that it has rotated a bit.

They said it's going to be about 200 if they can fix it, 500 to replace it (300 just for the part). I looked on eBay and found some used parts, but have two questions:

- How easy is it to replace a rear brake caliper?

- Would you trust an ebay caliper?

I'm thinking I should just pay them the $500 and get it fixed right the first time! Has anyone had any experience with this?

Maybe I'm dumb but why would you need to take the wheel off to swap the caliper? I don't recall needing to do that just for the brake...
