Need to service a mates sticky rear Elixir caliper. Piston on inside half keeps jamming and dragging, we have both done the pump piston in/out and lube but I think its obvious the piston seal needs replacing. There is a caliper service kit which says all rubber seals for one caliper. http://www.ukbikestore.co.uk/product/138/a15031a/avid-caliper-service-kit-elixir.html

There is also a piston service kit which says contains 2 x pistons and piston seals http://www.ukbikestore.co.uk/product/138/a15032a/avid-caliper-piston-kit-elixir.html

What I need to know is do I just need the seal kit or do I need the piston kit as well, the pistons look okay but I want to be sure that the piston seals are included in the caliper seal kit.
