Re: front brakes

If you have a autozone near, go rent this because you will thank me later when you are trying to get the piston back in.

It's the rear pistons that are hard to get back in...the front you can use a c clamp on..

Yes, i know this works for both of them and yes you can use a c clamp but this is much easier then a c clamp trust me.

Don't forget to take the cap off the brake fill tank, and also you don't need to bleed them if your just replacing pads... When was the fluid last flushed? If not in a while then I would flush old out, then new in. It will take five bottles to be on the safe side, then you'll need to bleed them... I assume you already know all this, so sorry, but if you really didn't then your welcome...
