mustang rear brake lining replacement

I just finished my first brake job on my 2008 Mustang GT. I chose to purchase a special tool to rotate and push the rear caliper pistons on both the left and right rear calipers. The tool kit worked very well and is well worth the $45 from harbor freight. I did not know if the left side caliper (drivers side) would require a left hand thread. It did not. The tool kit includes both left and right hand threads. For $29 a right hand thread is all that is needed. I first purchased the little cube. This proved way too akward and required a third hand. (i tried duct tape to hold the caliper still). the tool kit from harbor freight sure made the brake job a lot easier. snap on wants over $200 for their kit and it doesn't include a left hand thread.
