Hell no I even was told to disassemble the two halves by the local garage owners down the street so that I could have access to remove the pistons (not necessary, obviously), but when they asked why the standard calipers were not enough and gave me a funny look, I thanked them for the advice and ran home to pop the pistons out by hand.

***For the record, these calipers were purchased overseas and were previously on a 1998 WRX Type RA. Note the condition of the pistons and cylinders when contemplating your next rebuild***

No need to use a compressor, needle nose plyers, wrenches, or disassemble the caliper front from back half.

Thanks guy's, this is not something I would like to do every year, but my calipers needed some TLC.
