Is there any reason you can't use a c-clamp to compress the piston in the rear caliper?

I've used this method before. Not on a Shelby, but as long as you're careful I'm sure it would work.

You cannot use just a C-clamp to reset the rear caliper pistons.  The pistons must be turned in a clockwise direction while appling pressure to push them back into the caliper; this generally applies to rear brakes that combine the parking brake mechanism into the caliper.  I use a caliper tool kit that's available from Harbor Freight.  It allows me to turn the piston while applying forward pressure against a backing plate that's braced to the opposite side of the caliper.
