Just go to an Auto Parts Store and look for the cube that has all of the different tools in one. I've been using mine for years. It also has sockets for a 3/8" ratchet wrench on each side which really helps when turning the pistons back in. Car makers are using electric parking brakes on some vehicles to do away with the frozen brake cable problem so look for power and ground wires running to calipers on newer vehicles. Those type of caliper pistons retract by reversing the polarity to the caliper.
