Brake job blunder?

So I have a 2000 XE CC, when I got it the front driver-side brake caliper was leaking from the rubber around the piston, I had it replaced and it's been fine since. This evening I attempted to replace the brake pads on the truck, starting with the passenger side. No issues until I went to compress the caliper pistons back so that I could get it over the new pads. When I did, brake fluid began leaking out from the same place.

Is this just due to age?
Did I do something wrong?
Is it fixable without replacing the entire caliper?

I've never had this problem with any other vehicles I've owned. I couldn't find any threads in the search related to the 2000. Any info would be awesome.

Jarsh. If a caliper is leaking on one side, you can be sure that the one on the other side is also near failure. You should always repair or replace components for brakes in pairs. (Both sides)
