I bought all new pads for my 02 GT. The fronts were no problem but the rears are giving me fits. I can't get the caliper piston to go in. First, is the direction you turn them different depending on the side. I read the drivers side is clockwise and the passengers is counter clockwise. Is this true? My manual just says turn the piston clockwise. I got a caliper piston tool from Pep Boys but I can't get the piston to turn at all. I want to make sure I am turning them the correct way. I am so close to getting this done. About half a turn of the piston will do it. Any tips?

Yup, bleeder valve, and remove the reservoir cap, the rear calipers can be a major PITA sometimes. It makes a huge difference to have to square looking tool, well worth the cost.
