Well first you have to ask yourself if it is disk or drum in the front. Now most vehicles in that year are disk in front and drum in the rear. If it is a disk brake setup it should be fairly easy. First you must remove wheels, then you must see how the caliper is bolted on. Then un bolt it. Make sure you see how the brake pads are set into the caliper before removing. Remove. Replace. Installation is opposite Removal.
