Default Brake Caliper rebuild

I'm considering re building my front and rear calipers ,of my 03 WRX wagon, over the holidays as I bought the re-build kit for the new boots and grease.

My question is what piston clamp do I need to re insert the pistons after i have removed them? I have heard that I can get a tool to do the job at SEARS but I don't know what tool.

Thank you in advance

Haven't done brakes on a WRX but you will need a C clamp to hold the other piston in place while you apply compressed air to get the other piston unstuck.

It should go back together with just your hands.

Just in case pick up some silicon grease like sil-glyde at NAPA to help with reassembly.

Thanks
I figured it would go back together with the use of a C clamp if I had to. The re-build kit comes with a bunch of red grease but ill run to the parts store and get some decent hi temp silicon grease before I start.

Thanks again and happy holidays
