Man, you weren't kidding when you said you have to push ungodly. It's two days later and my hands still hurt but I was able to get the caliper back in and get the brakes installed.
Thanks for the help! Next time around it will be much easier now that I know what to do
Next time spend the ~$20 and get the caliper compression tool....... makes the piston go in "like buttuh", plus then you'll have the tool for the next time around. Some auto parts stores will loan them out for free too.
Happy to help.
[/quote] we're talking about a c-clamp right?
NO dont go with a c clamp, you will likely cause damage trying to jam it back it... you have to put pressure and turn at the same time, the compression tools that you can rent/buy do this
i've always used a c-clamp and never had a problem
