    Default Rear disk brake question

    Hello, I just realized that my tahoe has a two piston rear caliber and I have to change my rear brakes this weekend. Has anyone worked with these before. If so, do you c clamp both pistons back into the caliber at the same time or do you do one at a time? thanks in advance.

    On my 2001 Suburban, I just stick one of the old pads over the pistons and compress with a large c-clamp until they are in all the way leaving maximum clearence to install new pads and be able to slip the caliper onto the rotor.

    I appreciate the response, sounds like you compress both at one time. I will try that. Thanks again
