Question about 2008 Jeep Patriot
Rear caliper piston will not retract into the caliper housing. Does it need to be rotated then pushed or do I need a caliper tool?

yes the first 3 digits 411 is your ratio and they should be on the other rears the same way they have to match the front rear end

SOURCE: changed rear rotors and brake
Just us a c-clamp to push the piston in but before you start turning the clamp open the bleeder screw to allow the fliud to drain instead of pushing dirty fluid back into the system

No you do not.
Here is the steps for the brake job and it does not state that other than compressing the piston, you do NOT have to rotate it like on some foreign vehicles:

NOTE Hold the spring in the caliper hole with your thumb while prying the spring end out and under the anchor.
