Anyone else work on any rear brakes for a Chevy? Got everything working well but I could not get the pistons to push back in the caliper. Ended up having to replace the driver rear and use a hammer in the passenger rear (yikes) to get it to depress in after two different compressors would not work. Is this normal on these?

The rear pistons need to be twisted in.

Guess I should have taken the time to watch more than 2 mechanic videos. Both did the rear calipers on a Malibu/Impala with a standard compressor. Found a couple others today that had the specialty tool.
