ok, the pad is the curvey thingy, the calliper is the big heavy metal thing that sits on the discs, if you don't know what the discs are then you shouldn't be doing this. The calliper has pistons, which push the pads. The pads clip off, and then depending on the fron or the back (different methods) you wind or push back your piston, and then stick in new pad, bolt it back up. Not very hard.





Cheap, fast and reliable.. choose 2.

sounds easy... think ill take mine to my mechanic, have the discs machined while im there, and have a service, he does an awesome job on it all, and i trust him, so $500 well spent
