If you look at the piston on the front brakes, you will see 2 little grooves in it. Theres a tool that goes in there allowong you to twist the piston to compress it.. just squeezing it won't work. the tool is about $10 at autozone.

Remember lefty loosey righty tighty

Sorry, no info on the rears.. never had one with rear drums.. all 6 of mine have had discs


Edit:my loyale had rear drums, but I never even looked at them
