Is it worth swapping the pistons and seals out, or why don't Shimano sell f#cking parts

hey all, I've got an older XTR set of brakes, 985 series, that I like but the rear has always leaked a little. I think it's from a seal or piston.

I need to get this set of brakes up and running again so I bought a new caliper that I thought I'd just bolt up and live with it but now I'm thinking... is it worth trying to swap the pistons and seals out from the XT caliper into the XTR? Will they even fit? Donor XT caliper below.

Or, leave the xts intact and buy some new chinesium pistons from eBay. I figure the less ceramic you have in there the less chance you have of cracking ceramic
