Also would this pad spreader work? It's only 16 bucks vs 50 for the other?

I use a 5/32 inch punch from home depot. It is in section with hammers and such. It came in a set of a few punches. Cheap. Easy to obtain. Will last a lifetime (for this use).

Spreaders only work if you take the caliper off. The rotor prevents use of piston spreaders while the caliper remains mounted to wheel hub assembly.
Not true on the spreader. Pull pads out, insert spreader with enough space to allow the rotor in and then squeeze. I'd spend the extra five bucks and get a lisle spreader tho.
