01 Brake Problem

Howdy all!

I'm replacing the rotors and pads on my dad's 01 Expedition. I got the EBC 7000 Green Severe Duty Pads and Wagner Rotors.
The problem I'm running into is that I cannot get the flippin' caliper back on. The caliper's pistons are completely depressed. It should slide right on, but it won't. I've even broken the piston boots. Which means I'll need to buy a rebuilt caliper.

Should I have the rotor turned slightly or what? I'm at a loss right now....

Thanks

Re: 01 Brake Problem

Well, I figured it out using an unorthodox method of putting the caliper on.

I assemble the caliper, pads and caliper bracket and then slide the entire assembly on to the rotor.

Hopefully this can help somebody in the future with a similar problem.
