You push the front pistons in and turn the rear depending on the e-brake system.

Change brake pads


For starters the front and rear us disk pads and it is not hard to do. On the front jack up the front and us jack stand for safety. After you take of the wheel remove the two bolts at the back of the brake caliper remove the caliper and then the old pads us a C- clamp with one of the old pads installed in the caliper then just us the c-clamp to push the cylinder all the way in until it will go no further install new pads put back on. But before you do the next side hit the brake to push the cylinder back out. Go to other side do the same thing. On a side not you only need to replace the rear brakes every other time you do the front. The front wear twice as fast as they do most of the stopping.

How to compress back brake calipers when installing new ones


You open the rear caliper bleeder valve as it is
near impossible to push fluid to the front of car

Then you turn the caliper piston clockwise-to turn
in the parking brake adjuster- as you push the piston
into the caliper bore

Two functions-piston turned in & pushed in

You line up the piston notch to the top-so the
round bump on the inner pad goes down in place

After the caliper & pads are on & before you start the
car & bleed the 4 corners & then push brake for a firm
pedal-----You ratchet up the lever on park brake at back of caliper

They don't make a tool for an LS

I took the cube avail at any parts store & filed the outsides
of two pins to fit the piston notches

Only unbolt the bottom pin. The whole caliper assembly will swing up and then the pad replacement can be done. Not a very complicated set up. Good luck and have a great day.
