quick question about rear brake caliper on 2000 impala

I am getting ready to replace the pads on my 2000 Impala, 3.8 automatic, and have a question about the rear calipers. I know that on some cars the rear caliper screws back in instead of just pushing back in like the front. Does the rear on this car just push in or do I need to turn it as it goes back in? thanks.

Wow, Google is a wonderful thing:

How to Change the Rear Brake Pads on a Chevy Impala | eHow.com

I helped my son with his rear caliper on his 2001 Mustang once. We didn't have the proper tool but we were able to screw the piston in with a needle nose plier.

Good luck!
