You can't compress them, because there is an emergency brake you screw them in. Put a large chisel in the slots and turn it back in. Make sure the master cylinder is open because you are doing the same as compressing a front caliper and the fluid will rise.

The front brake rotors can warp and cause a vibration when braking. The rotors will need to be machined or in cases where they are worn to thin, replaced to correct this issue.
I am basically downshifting to stop and when I hit the brakes it pulls to the left.
