Default I'm New, Brake Calipers on PT's

I'm new to the PT world, but me and my buddy are going to change my pads and put on some new rotors My question is what kind of Calipers do our cars have? Screw in Pistons, or ones you can depress in with a vise grip and piece of wood. I'm just trying to get an idea so that i can have everything in order before i start.

Welcome.
The pistons push in - I use a big c-clamp.
Be sure to hang the caliper with a piece of strong wire - don't let it hang by the brake hose.
