There are caliper compress tools ($38 Amazon)

Several ways from brute force to special tools. I, like FordNut just use a C-clamp and it works fine.

Your vehicle has the emergency brake made into the caliper so your vehicle needs a special tool that turns piston and pushes in at the same time. Your local parts store like auto zone will lend it to you.
