The piston will keep spinning when all the way in so you are OK on that.
Can’t tell you what the click was?? I don’t remember any click when doing mine.

Only thing I can suggest (and you seem to have already done this) is to just redo that caliper, and be sure the slides are good and lubed and is sliding good.

The click might be the "one way clutch" in the caliper housing... but yeah, the piston keeps spinning even after it's retracted all the way. Once the piston is flush with the rubber dust boot, it's completely retracted.

Thanks for your input. I think all is ok now. The park brake adjustment was way off. So I am sure that helped. I just dont know why the resting position of the piston was so far away. Worst case scenario.... I will have to get a rear caliper for a 1992 Dodge monaco. Its like 60 bucks.

Read this..... Really interesting....

Thanks for the link, that's cool information. EliseParts.com sells a reconditioning kit for the rear brakes too... I just refreshed a few components myself: http://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f91/rear-brake-dust-shield-69885/#post1264157
