Rear brakes

All i wanted to do was replace the caliper and pads but it is the BIGGEST pain in the ***.
Anyone else have problems with putting pads in the caliper

on the front that's fine..on the back it'll shatter the piston...the rears require it to be spun as it's pressed in

Ive read that the rear caliper "guide pins" tend to stick, not allowing caliper to move properly creating a bind. Theyre possibly ur problem ($4 each), if not, time 4 new calipers ur 98's probly due 4 some anyhoo...how many miles on ur ride?
