[mecry] I have a rear SVT brake caliper and the piston is pushed out and I can not push it back down. Seems as if there isnt very much old fluid in it, so its almost dry, athouth it has some. Anyone know of how to possibly break it lose or anything im over looking?

I don't have an SVT, but I believe that those screw in not press in like the fronts. Pressing on it with a clamp can cause it to lock up like that, but you might be able to free it up using the correct tool. Most auto parts stores carry the tool. It's a square thing that fits on the end of a 3/8 ratchet or extension and has different pegs for the different screw in brake designs.
Correct, they screw in. After you get the tool, back it out a notch, and then screw it in.

Ok, i converted my rear drums to the svt disks so I wasnt sure. Good to know now that they are unlike the front. I will turn out a bit before I turn them all the way back in. Thanks a ton guys.

Where, you would have found the answer in this thread: [;)]
rear caliper will not push in to let new pads in (http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=149141)
