Rear Brake question

Got a 2008 XLT, need to change the rear disk brakes. Done many brakes in my time but not on this ride yet. Maybe dumb question but does the caliper get pushed in on the rears or do you have to 'turn' it back in. Looked for some guidance and saw another ford vehicle where you needed to turn the caliper on the rears. Just want to know if i need any additional special tools verses the typical.
Thanks!

* funny thing is that the rear brakes seem to have worn quicker than the fronts. Fronts have about 10K left, while rear are completely gone. My experience has been 2 fronts to 1 rear....

Did the brakes on the 2006 Expedition and no turning was required. Just got a thin block of wood with a c-clamp and slowly pushed it back on both the front and back. Doubtful the 2008 would be much different. The Expedition also had the rears shot around 50k miles... Lincoln also seems to be on the same track as well.

FYI - I did my 2007 xlt rears this year also. I think at 40k miles and I too was surprised that the rears went well before the fronts. Anyway I don't remember doing anything special in changing them. I too have done many brakes over the years and I think I just used the c-clamp. I did not go with ceramics however, and I have have no brake noise.
Good luck - Mark
