You brake shoes are probably hanging up.If you are replacing the rear rotors just take a small sledge and beat on the back of the rotor where the dust shield is exposed.

Is the piston sticking in the caliper or is the caliper sticking on the outside slides preventing it from moving to the disc?

they can be such a pain because they get stuck on if you can get to the adjuster through a small hole in either the front or back of the drum adjust it so the brake shoes are not making contact then tap the drum with a hammer and pull it off you may have to prie at it with a tire tool i used two of them and worked it off the pads it gets stuck baddly on the center axle.If you don`t mean drum brakes then the brake caliber has two bolts at the back that need loosened up as far as possible and then the caliber will come off bylifting it off you may have to gently prie it up off there next is the center cap remove that and then cotter pin there should be a large bolt to remove take it off be carefull of barrings then the disk should come off. Hope this helped.

Tips for a great answer:
Remove the center console covering the parking brake lever. Locate the parking brake lever between the drivers seat and the front passenger seat. Put the parking brake lever in the lowest position.
Turn the cable adjuster locknut to make the nut loose. Find the nut at the base of the parking brake lever.
Raise your GT rear wheels using a jack and support the rear wheels using jack stands. Remove both rear wheels using a tire iron to loosen and take off the lug nuts. Take off the tire from the rods by hand.
Get underneath the car and remove the rubber hole plugs from the brake rotors. Locate the rotors on the underneath inside of the wheel wells.
Take off the brake calipers with a screwdriver, but do not disconnect the brake fluid lines.
Use a pry bar to push up on the parking brake self adjuster wheel. Locate this next to the brake caliper and it looks like a star wheel. Rotate this wheel until the rotors will not turn.
Turn the adjuster wheel five notches in the opposite direction. Reinstall the calipers and wheels. Lower your GT using the jack and remove the jack stands from the rear wheels.
