The back tires!!! If you have a 05-09 mustang the back tires are ganna be a pain. The front ones are easy. Your ganna need a clamp or some sort to add pressure to the piston. Now the back ones are made different. Once you release the piston from the brake pads the pistons shoot up and they don't go down as easy as the front. You need to add pressure while turning the piston. Best way to do this is go to Autonation and ask for the kit to do this. I forget what the kits called, But they will give it to you. Charge like 300 bucks for it but if you return it then you get your money back. Its pretty much free as long as you return it of course.

I did it with a C clamp and vice grips to turn it.
