rear brake caliper tool kit

What tools do I need to replace brake on rear calipers

Most rear disk brake calipers are different that the front. You can’t just push the piston back into the bore when it’s time to replace the pads. You have to screw the pads back in. To do that you need a special tool with pegs that match the manufacturer’s pattern. Some tool companies sell an inexpensive square block with pegs on it. It works, but barely. It keeps popping out of the holes. This Lisle kit eliminates the pop out problem. You install the fixture and then screw in the piston. It’s a single operation with no slip out. It’s pricey ($61), but will save you a lot of time and you can use the curse words for another occasion.
