2006 Chevrolet Uplander Question: Rear Calipers
These are rather hard to compress without a special tool you can do do it with some pliers but i don't recommended go to autozone they may have a loaner tool to lend you i found this video on youtube this might give you an idea on how to do it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89uvYc2l3kw - sinautoscan.com

How do i compress the rear brake piston so I can slide the caliper over the new brake pads
torque on front and rear caliper bolts uplander 2005
Even though bleeder is open and "c" clamp applied, the piston on the caliper will not retract enough to allow yoke to fit over new pads. There is still about 3/8" retraction required.
How often should I replace the rear brake calipers on my 2005 Uplander?
