You da man! I don't have a lot of game, in fact almost nil so I need a prop.
The c clamp works on the OEM calipers. This is more for fixed calipers where some people use the brake pads to push the pistons back. That works too but you can kind of jack up your pads a bit and it does take some effort. Its really not fun when the brakes might be a tad hot.
This tool makes life much easier. Definitely not necessary, a nice to have thing which is why I won't spend $200 on this.
