Try and take a small piece of wood and a c clamp Put the wood over the piston in the caliper and put the c clamp around that and the back of the caliper and tighten This should cause the piston to push back into the caliper

Why do the brakes squeak after they have been replaced on a 1998 grand caravan?

Whoever replaced your pads may have neglected to apply anti squeal goop to the back of the new brake pads. Brake pads should have some greasy stuff smeared on their surfaces where they meet the caliper, the caliper piston, and at the ends where they fit into the caliper. The squeal is caused by high frequency vibration where the back of the pad presses against the caliper and caliper piston(s).
