the pads are easy... kinda hard to explain it though. basically all you gotta do is unbolt the caliphers and pull the old pads out. use high temp gel on the opposite side of the surface of the part that contacts the rotors... also put some on the screws that have the little spring mechanism on them. its pretty easy.. all you gotta do is pull it apart and basically put it back together how it was but with the new pads. also... you have to reset the piston. there is a little tool you can buy from like napa auto and stuff that sets in the little rivots on the bottom of the piston... you have to twist it and push in at the same time. do it until you have enough clearance for the new pads. hope all this made sense haha... im kinda tired

yeah, the rear piston doesnt just push in like the front ones do, you have to "screw" them in with that tool cobraboy is talking about. other than that, its a very simple brake job.
