1996 Ford Other

Could I please get some advice on how to properly adjust the brakes after switching them out. I recently replaced my brake pads. Front pads were a piece of cake. Rear pads were not so easy. I could not get the calipers to decompress until I backed off on (a hex head set screw in the back of the caliper) Now I have my brakes back on, I can't set the compression between the pads and the hand brake right, plus my rear caliper seems to stay compressed. Please how do I set these brakes properly? : Roll:
