    you need to use a c-clamp to push the caliper piston in. I know on the rears you have to rotate the piston clockwise, I don't think u have to on the front.

    you need to compress the caliper piston back into it's housing, use an old brake pad against the piston and a large C-clamp to push the piston back in. and everything should fit just fine.
