Piston screws in, clockwise. It's designed for a special tool, but that can be gotten around if need be. First thing I'd do is call AZ and see if they can rent you a rear caliper tool. Just match the correct adapter to the slots in the piston face and start turning until it is flush with the housing. The adapters are fitted with a 3/8 drive, on the Japanese cars you can usually get the pistons turned in without having to use the clamp portion of the tool. Just use a ratchet/extension.
