SOURCE: Brakes pulsate real hard
That is just the ABS system at work. It is supposed to prevent your wheels from locking which often makes the brake pulsate, especially in wet weather or or snow or ice. The only way to really stop this is to disable to ABS by unplugging it and removing the fuse. This will make the ABS light appear in your dash, but your brakes will stop pulsating.

SOURCE: Changing rear breaks
Try tapping around the rotor hat (the area that actually fits over the hub, where the lug bolt holes are) with a hammer. That usually will loosen up a rotor that's stuck due to heat, dust, etc. As for compressing the rear piston, they're a screw-in design, not a compression design like the front calipers. You need a piston retracting set (you can borrow them from AutoZone), and with that you can screw the pistons into the calipers. After removing the reservoir cap underhood, screw them all the way in so that you have ample clearance for the new pads over the new rotors, then pump the brakes a few times before you hit the road (put the reservoir cap back on first).

SOURCE: can not compress the rear
there is a special tool needed for it but u can use a pair of vice grips to do it... but more or less u have to turn the piston counter clock wise and piston will go back into the caliper
