1. Remove lug caps
2. Remove lug nuts
3. Jack Up car
4. Remove Tires/Rims
5. Support Rear with jackstands
6. Remove 2 bolts holding caliper/bracket assembly
- bolts are 5/8" I think and the heads of the bolts are on the backside of the axle
7. Remove caliper assembly from rotor and support (Do not let it just hang there)
8. Remove pads from caliper assembly (they slide out)
- may want to pop the brake fluid cap and remove some fluid from the resivior before proceeding
9. Use a large c-clamp to depress caliper plunger
9. Remove Rotor (may need a hammer and a few good whacks if old)
10. Replace rotor
11. Place new pads in caliper
- these should have a spring on one end. You depress the spring in the groove and slide the pads into slots in the calipers (the pad with the extra tabs on the ends faces the main caliper piston
- you may want to add some specific brake quieting grease and/or shims between pads and caliper
12. Slip caliper with pads onto rotor (if it doesn't fit remove the pads and depress the piston using the c-clamp more)
13. Re-install 2 caliper assembly mounting bolts
14. Raise vehicle and remove jackstands
15. Re-install wheels/rims/lugs
16. Lower vehicle and torque lugnuts
17. Re-install covers
18. Refill brake fluid to proper level
19. Re-install brake fluid cap
20. Start car and pump brakes a few times
If your brake fluid hasn't been changed in a while, good time to change/bleed the brake system. Use brake cleaner to get grease/oil off the rotors prior to remounting the wheels; don't get grease or oil on the brake pads. New pads and rotors need to be seated or seasoned to get the best performance out of the system.

1) When I push on my brakes at a stand still or coming to a stop they make a wierd squishing or springy noise and you can feel it a bit in the brake pedal. What the heck is this? I didnt silicone the pads when I put them back on, could that affect the install and should I silicone all the brakes?
2) How do you know when a disk is warn and has to be turned or is beyond turning?
