I have a 95' GT and I am replacing the pads and rotrs on the rear. Do you have to compress the piston back into the caliper or do you somehow "screw" it in? I have done the fronts before on disc brake cars but this is a first rear disc car I have had. Thaks for your help.:p

It has to be screwed in because of the design of the caliper. It has to incorparate both regular brakes as well as a parking brake. That's why it's different.

You can get tha special tool to screw them in or you can do what I do and use a pair of needlenose pliers. Just be careful not to slip and shove them through your hand.
I have a big red dent in my left quarterpanel now. It got there after I rammed the needle nose through my left palm. I then proceeded to jam my right pinkie knuckle back an inch or so on my q panel. Also there is a pair of needle nose pliers imbedded in the sheetrock in my garage.
