Best Answer

The most dedicated or special tool one must have to change the brakes is Knowledge or the ability to follow directions carefully and closely.

Remember. It is easy to get something rolling, the trick is to stop it from doing so quickly when necessary. Brakes are simple but there is a fine line between getting the job done and doing it correctly, and experience or a good teacher certaily makes this difference.
