I'm planning on putting new brake pads in my 85GT. Everything is stock. I have replaced brake pads in the past (sometimes with squeak issues afterward though) and I'm concerned about the need to twist and compress the rear calipers at the same time.
Any info on how to do this would be helpful. Thank you!

I followed the Ogres advice and did not rotate the piston. Instead compressed them straight back. Good right up in the cave.

Thanks, so the rears can just be compressed with a c-clamp without rotating them? That would be great.
Can you link me to the Ogre's info?
Thank you !

Just need a large c clamp and a socket over the screw on the back to allow it to spin.
