Getting set to do brakes all around. Pads and rotors are here and Monday's set aside.
Question is what do I need to be able to turn/screw/twist in the rear caliper pistons? Might I have something in the shop that would work or do I need to buy something??? Fronts take a c-clamp but not the rears.

Re: RearBrakes 96DeVille
FYI - this is what's needed:
Along with an 18mm spanner and a box of bandaids - gotta pull the caliper mount to get the rotor off. Caliper will easily swing-up to get the pads, but the whole deal needs to be removeed to get the rotor off. DO NOT seperate caliper from bracket OR pull brake line.
