anyone know if removing the caliper piston is the same procedure if you have a dual piston?

i've seen some vids showing how to "blow" out one piston...just wondering if its the same for a dual piston

I am changed all four brake rotors on my Infiniti G35 sedan Journey 2008,in this case i used Centric premium brake rotors,got real good deal at and i follow your real nice DIY,thanks a lot for that.It takes me maybe 2 and half hours and went real smooth,braking feels much more better,no any noise coming from my calipers anymore,i really like it.Previous rotors are original and have 107435 miles on them,plus they been resurfaced once already.I use Hawk HPS or if available Hawk HPS 5.0 on all of my cars,its my personal choice,i am not doing any track or racing and these pads are excellent choice,long life,easy on rotors,moderate or low dust,and outstanding initial brake bite,no matter cold,wet or hot.Normally no matter what i am always change my brake pads in interval of 2-3 years and never have any problems.About rotors,from engineering point of view drilled rotors much more prone to crack or fade because of removed metal from rotor body and slots,of course increase pads initial bite,but they shorten pads life and they not going to be there for life of rotor,friction going to shave them sooner or later.In my case i have Hawk HPS on front setup,they dont have 0.5 for front of my car and Hawk HPS 5.0 on rear.Love it!
