so i got into the brakes a bit more yesterday. I took the wheel off and pilled the capiler. The brake pads secures to the piston with a clip. When I tried pulling the pad off I was able to move the piston by hand. I didn;t know if this was ok cuz I always thought you needed some sort of clamp to move the piston. There is no sign of brake fluid leak. I put the current parts back together (new pads and rotors are on their way) and I did a couple hard stops and the ABS did not come on and the rear brakes were hot. I still dont get why they look so crappy
