Front brake rotor install: special tool required?

I have new rotors and pads sitting in my garage and I was all set to jack the car up and get everything replaced and ready to go this afternoon.

Then at work someone said the SVT Focus uses some brake parts from the Mustang and that I'd need to have some special tool to screw into the calipers to get the old rotors out and the new ones in.

I talked to another guy that has a mustang and he confirmed that his front calipers require some kind of tool to do any work on the rotors, but said he'd never heard anything about it being needed on the focus.

Anybody here have any clarification? I searched the forum here and couldn't find anything about replacing the front rotors on the SVT.
