Cool or no?


Brakes are easy, you don't need to bleed them unless you remove one of the brake hoses. Which you should not need to do.

You need a C clamp to push the piston back into the caliper and a decent set of tools, also a couple of 8mmx1.25 bolts to back the rotors off the hub.

Some PB Blaster and anti-seize compound.

I'll assume you have a floor jack and stands.

A torque wrench is good to have for the lug nut's. I torque them to 80ftlbs have I put anti-seize on the studs and nuts.

Also put the compound on the bolts that hold the caliper on.

Brake grease for the slider pins.

I spray the 8mm x1.25 bolts with the PB Blaster and put the compound on them before installing them in the rotors to remove them.
