Question about 1998 Ford Mustang
I can not get the rear calipers to compress do you have any idea why?
To get the pistons to compress on the rear calipers, you need a special caliper service tool. The piston actually "turns back" into the caliper body rather than going strait in, so a C-clamp will not work. It's really simple to do if you have the right tool, which you should be able to get at your local parts store. It has small notches that fit into the face of the piston- you'll see when you go to use it, quite self explanatory. The big chains like O'Reilly, AutoZone and Advance usually carry these to rent or sell.
One time I was a in a jam, and I used a pair of needle nose pliers but I DO NOT recommend doing that!
