Tell them you need the tool to decompress the plunger on the rear calipers. It should look like a squared cube if my memory serves me correctly. Shouldn't be any more than 15-20 bucks.

Here's a pic of one. You just put a 3/8" ratchet on the opposite end and spin it until it's completely decompressed. You'll see what I mean once you take a look at it.
