this is a turn in caliper, meaning that as you try to compress the piston, you also need to rotate it clockwise. you can buy tool for this at nearly any parts store, and is fairly inexpensive.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your assistance. I found out the turning piston part by mistake, a day after I posted the question, when I tried to use a G-Clamp."
put the back of car on jack stands and secure the front tires so it does not roll and then remove the bolts off the back of the caliper there is normally two one at top and one at bottom and spray it with some kind of oil for rust and make sure you have the right size socket before you try to loosen them and once caliper is off and the old pads removed take one of the old pads and squeeze the piston on the caliper back in by using a "C" clamp and also remove some of the brake fluid from the master cylinder before you do this put the new ones back on and check the brake fluid and make sure it is full and then pump the brakes to make sure you have a good pedal also put some "No Squeak" brake stop on the back of the pads so they don't squeak they will have that where you buy the pads from

use a 14mm wrench or socket to remove the caliper bolts/slides. remove caliper. note how old pads came off, match the new pads with same location of old pads ( check for hardware or indicator location). press the caliper piston in . the correct way is to use a caliper press, apply a little pressure to piston, open bleeder screw, press piston all the way in, tighten bleeder. (or grab a 'c' clamp and slowly push the piston in. i would recommend having the rotors machined to for proper wear and to eliminate vibration. for this remove 2 17mm bolts holding caliper bracket on and rotor will slide off.
