Special Tool for Rear Brake Caliper Piston compression?
When removing the brake calipers and replacing rotors & pads, I've seen reference to using a c-clamp for the front caliper to press the piston back in. But for the rear caliper, I've seen reference both here and in the service manual for a special tool that's used to press the rear caliper's piston back in.
What is this tool and can it be bought just about anywhere? Just looking for more detail on this special "tool".
Is getting this tool the ONLY way to get the rear caliper back on? (I just want to know before I take the calipers off the rotors and get stuck on this task at a point-of-no-return state).
