After having seen this web site, I finally takkled my front pads. Man is it EASY 8o .
About the tools, nothing special at all. Just raise car, remove the wheel, loosen lower caliper bolt with a 14mm socket, and a c-clamp to compress the caliper.
What brand of pads are you putting in? I put in some Axxis Deluxe Plus with great results at great value.
I hope this helps, if you have more questions just post.

Of course if you intend to fill the system with new fluid, the above is not a concern.

I'm just going to try and do it without having to change the fluid. It seems ok to me.
How big of a c clamp do I need??? Might go to Lowe's today and get one since I do this about once every 2 years...
Thanks alot guys!

as for the c clamp, there is a better tool that i highly recommend. i think it is in the $10 range at pepboys or autozone type stores. it looks like half a brake pad with a threaded rod through it. you place one of the old pads in the piston side, then this tool in place of the other pad, turn the knob, and it compresses the piston. very easy...

it comes up as the rear pads. But my car has rear discs. So my question is will the "rear pads" fit the front of my car??

What are you putting in? rear pads refers to rear disc brake pads.
If you're looking for stuff online for those two sites i posted, call them. They will be able to get you pads for the front and rear. They just don't have them listed on their site (stoptech's)
