Hey folks, its my first time changing out the rear pads. Does anyone know if I can substitute the "calipertool" with something else?

Below are some helpful links for rear pad replacement;



I've also included pics of the tool.

You can also use a C-clamp. Just place one of your old pads over the piston and tighten up. Just make sure your boot doesn't bulge out or else it could damage the boot.


That was taken pretty much directly from the "How to change brake pads/rotors thread."
Ohh okay, I haven't made it around to the back yet. I guess it's a good thing that I found this before I got half way into replacing my rear rotors.
