Mike Sylvester and I have now rebuilt quite a number of the rear calipers.
Last time, we tried a caliper piston spring compression tool that consisted
of a deep 3/8 drive socket and the addition of a 3/8 to 1/2 inch drive
adapter, which gave just enough height to then use a screw driver as a
fulcrum ( instead of using the "C" clamp) against the caliper body....
