I think my rear caliper pistons are siezed and wont move at all. i tried the piston adjuster tool and it wouldnt turn for anything, then i tried some c-clamps and it ended up binding the clamp and lever turner.

the brakes were worn to bare metal on one side but i cant push in either piston. im running out of light and thank god for my other ford i can drive. i cant get the both pads over the new rotor and the parking brake tension has been released on both sides.

any tips to help me out? ive never had this problem and i was taught to use c-clamps to give it hell but that wont work.

Ok, you have to push it into the bore much harder than it is to turn the piston. For my car I would say the force required to push it in was about the same as to loosen the bolts that retain the caliper brackets. And you are on the right path turning and compressing.

I will agree the title carries some other connotations for those that are of foul mindsets.

I think the rear brakes are the same from 89 to 97. But just to be safe I usually try to get parts from 94-97.

And I agree, it sounds like they are messed up and needing to be entirely replaced.
