Hey im planning to replace the rotors & Pads on my AU front and rear.
Want to know the steps in the process.. I heard something about repacking wheel bearings after doing it and wasnt sure. There is probably already a similar topics on here but i couldnt find anything AU Specific so any help would be awesome. Thanks :)

front is easy.

take off the wheel
remove the caliper
disk should come off with ease
then slide the new disk on

BEFORE you push the pistons back in make sure the brake fluid cap is OFF otheer wise yit can pop off and you will have brake fluid through the engine bay and if that s**t gets on ya paint that panel is f**k. the brake fluid will get into the metal and can not be removed.

while the old pads are in the caliper use a g-clamp the push the pistons back in
change the pads
slide the caliper back into place bolt it all back on.

rear is the same just a little trickier because of the handbrake shoes can be tight depending on how worn everything is

you dont bother with repacking the hub grease. if the hubs are loose the bearings are f**k.
you can buy replacement hubs(complete) from Repco for about $60-$70 ea
