For the record, there was no way in hell mine were coming out by hand. Air compressor is your best bet. You can also hook them back up to the brake line and push them out that way.

I bought mine in San Diego and it's spent most of it's life in Atlanta. Southern car. I tried the brake line thing but if you don't have fluid in the system. . .

I have a friend who has a compressor. Shouldn't take 10 minutes to blow them out, right? I'll pull all the calipers and then load them up in the truck. The drive time will be less than the time it's taking to work them out by hand, save effort and the destruction I'm wreaking on the pistons, too. I'm a work smarter not hard guy. -grin-
