This was one of the worse designs gm ever built. After removing caliper the caliper piston winds in clockwise. There is a special tool to so this but you may be able to do it with adjustable pliers. Very often the caliper slide pins will be frozen solid. If this is the case do yourself a favor and go buy a reman loaded brake caliper will save a ton of time.
