That feature is primarily found only on rear axles. (But not TJ rear axles.) It's a parking brake thing.

Navin R Johnson Awesome, thanks for the quick response. I changed the pads on my wife's Grand Caravan and the fronts went straight in with a clamp but I had to go rent a compression/twisting tool for the rear ones. Thanks again.

You can compress them with a C clamp. I usually just use a powerbar. They compress quite easily.

thetoadLJ Should compress fine with a c clamp. I've used that and the $5 tool from auto zone. Both work fine.
