Rear Brakes

After my s13 was sitting for over a year I decided to do brakes before driving it. Front install went smoothly. Now Iím at the rear, I have one side back on and together but the other side I cannot get. I rented the tool from autozone to twist the piston back in but on one of my rear calipers I canít get the thing to budge and twist in. The caliper is a little rusty but not terrible. Im guessing my caliper seized up? Any one have anything I can try to get this thing in? Tried putting some pb on it which didnít help much.

Find a good replacement caliper. If it's that hard to push in it will give you trouble on the road for sure.

Thatís what I was planning on doing was trying to salvage this one first though. Actually got the thing freed up and was working fine. Some seal mustíve broke though because it started pissing brake fluid everywhere

If it's a stock s13 rear I have a pair I'd sell to you one if you need. Came off my car I just did Z brakes. Lmk if interested.
