How To Replace Front Disc Brakes
Ok, I am doing my brakes right now and found some issues and inconsistencies with my how to, So here is the revised version
Here is my quick write up on pad replacement.
Break all lug nuts loose.
-Jack up vehicle and support with jack stands.
-I suggest doing one side at a time incase you need to use the other side as reference.
-Compress the caliper piston with a C-clamp. This is the first time I have tried this method and it seems to work

-Remove two caliper bolts. I think that they are Torques T-55 head.

For rears You may need a wrench to hold the guide pins from spinning. Put the wrench just on the otherside of the caliper, There are flat spots there, you may have to move the rubber boot alittle to find them
-Hang the caliper out of the way with a piece of wire.
-The pads are removed by sliding them away from the caliper. the outside pad slides down the metal brackets toward you. The inside slides toward the motor.
-pay attention to what pad came from the outside and which one came from the inside, you will use these for reference when installing the new pads
I guess that I have to do this in more then one post, it will not let me add anymore pictures
