I noticed that i need to replace the brake pads on both front and rear of my AUII XR6, just wondering what is the easist way i have never changed the pads on a twin piston caliper before.

Do they push in like the their single piston brothers?

How do you replace the rears? any speical tools required?

cheers Geoff
