Question about 1998 Ford Escort
Yep - Ford uses screw-in rear pistons on the calipers. You can go to AutoZone and rent the piston retracting tools to get the calipers back in where they need to be. Look at the face of the piston - see the two notches across from each other? That's where the pins on the retracting tool will sit, so that you can screw them in. Make sure you remove the brake fluid reservoir cap to make it easier to screw them in, and then put it back on as soon as you're done.
