do it same as any other car!
you don't even touch the ABS parts, at the least, clean the magnetic sensor and then slap ur rotor on!

As for the rear, the sensing ring is on the axle, also it'd be advisable to renew the Handbrake Drum pads, why not if ur replacing rotors and braking pads.

Also make sure you do rubber grease up the slide bolts on the calipers! I've seen some seized up with only 100,000k's on them, if you don't and they're tight... you'll expect outer rotor/pad wear!



Carefree, we may not be number one, but we're up there.

Make sure that your new rotors have the ABS tone wheel on the inside :idea: (the right types)




Better off with not enough traction than not enough power.
