Use the tool. A lot of parts stores like napa or auto-zone rent them or let you borrom them. It can be done without the tool but it's more difficult, you stand a greater chance of ripping the boot and why risk it. Spray the piston boot with a silicone spray the boot won't stick so much. Don't let the boot twist. Remember that one side caliper piston spins one way and the other side spins the opposite way.Pretty straight forward other than that. Good luck
