actually its the rear brake calipers you need the tool can buy it at Autozone or Advanced or prolly any parts store really. its just a square piece of metal, but each side has different caliper fittings i guess you would say. it fits on a 3/8" ratchet drive. basically all it does is screws the piston back into the caliper to allow for clearance with the new pads. you have to turn it in about 20 turns and your good to go.

the fronts all you need is a large C-clamp to push the piston in
Anyone can drive a car, but it takes a DRIVER to win...

My bad on the forum placement WD. Thanks for the move.

And thanks for all the help guys. I did end up changing the fronts this past Thursday and being unable to do the rears. I'll pick up that tool this week and finish the job then.
