Alan,

Buy yourself a brake piston wrench from Genisis, you can easily turn the pistons 180 degrees without having to remove the pistons.

BTW, i purchased some new calipers for the front of my 930 recently and did not check the orientation of the pistons. Spent a day at Sebring and the brakes were not working well at all. After returning home, I checked the brake components and found the pistons 180 degrees off. In addition, the brake pads were unevenly worn, enough that they were trashed and replaced with a new set ... live and learn. Gave them a quick spin with the wrench and it's all good again.

Good Luck, Dave
