Remove the wheelcovers, loosen the lugnuts. Jack the vehicle up and brace. Remove the lugnuts and the wheel.

The calipers are held on with two bolts, working from the engine side, remove the two bolts holding the caliper on. Once removed, swing the caliper assembly to the side and tie off with string or wire.

Check the condition of the rotor. Replace if necessary.

Remove the brake fluid cap. Pull the used pads out of the caliper assembly.

Using a large C-clamp, press the brake cylinder in all the way.

Install new pads and shims. Grease all moving surfaces with moly (it should come with the pads).

Slide the caliper back into place over the rotor. Bolt into position. Replace the wheel, lugnuts and wheelcover.

Repeat the entire process for the other side.

Put the brake fluid cap back on.

Drop and test, good luck.
