Where can I get this or is there something else I can use instead? I just want to make sure I have everything before I start.

Its like a Cube with different shaped prongs on it. You attach it to a ratchet and wined the Caliper in.

I then hooked it to an extension off of my variable speed drill, and slowly wound in the piston, made the job super easy and the tool costs less then $4.00

Ummm, don't use the channel locks on the outside of the piston. Screw the piston in using the notches on the front - I like the pipe method with notches cut out. You can make it yourself. Push and turn with one hand. 1.5" diameter pipe.

also note the correct position of the caliper to allow the pokie out thing on back of pad to slid into v-notch on caliper face. You probably knew that but....

Or you could use a clear hose going into a bottle with clean brake fluid so that it can't suck up air only clean brake fluid, just make sure there is no air in the hose, just brake fluid.
If it is difficult, then open the bleeder while turning the piston in. It should get much easier this way. You should also bleed the brakes after doing it this way though.
Like a one man bleeding system.

Where did you get a Bentley manual for a Subaru?
They used to be the best after-market manuals, but they don't cover everything. Their Corolla manual for the late 70's cars was brilliant, better than the factory one.

I forget where I got my Bentley now. It was online somewhere but not Books4Cars. They didn't have it. Maybe Amazon or eBay.
Anyways, I know this post is over a year old but I just got my license back and finally was able to get the work done on the front breaks. I ended up getting a break tool from O'Reilly's and it was fine.
Breaks are feeling a lot better now.
