Caliper twist tool???

Hey everyone,

Its been a while since Ive been on, and I apologize! But I have a question... Noob, Maybe...

I was discussing changing my rotors and pads tomorrow, which I have done on other cars plenty of times but never my 6, when a friend of mine stopped me and told me that I may need something called a "Caliper twist tool". He explained to me that with the rear calipers, I may not be able to use just a regular C clamp to open them up. And this tool is a "dealer tool".

Can someone tell me whether or not I actually need this thing? Or will I be ok to continue with just my C clamps?

Thanks guys,

C-Clamp for the fronts and the twisty thingy for the rears.
This is from Harbor Freight....Caliper Tool Set for Disc Brakes
Check this out....I got that kit for only $9.99!! There was some type of coupon or special over the summer that was going on and I bought it. I love that store! It's 2 mins away from my work in Aurora, IL. I haven't used the kit yet, but it looks like it will do the job.
Awesome....good job.
