    you should check them when you change the brakes to make sure the pins are lubed and not scratched up...

    You shopuld NEVER push the piston back without letting the old fluid out. For two reasons:
    1. Inside the caliper is durty fluid, not a good idea to push dirty fluid back in.
    2. You can damage your ABS by putting pressure on it.

    Well, the Phoenix is back on the road again-the squeeling was due to one of the metal plates the pad sits on-it was touching the rotor. The shop who bled my brakes just cut away some of the material and now it's all good =)
