you should always change the rotors aswell so you don't get a pulsation. firt you remove the wheel . then the 2 caliper bolts with i believe are a 12mm . then press the caliper piston back by squeezing them with a big pair of channel lock pilers or a c clamp. then remove the 2 caliper mounting cradle bolts which i believe are a 17mm them remove the rotor.

You don't always have to change the rotors. If the brakes are pulsing when you push them, take the rotors to an auto parts store and ask them to cut the rotors for you. This can only be done a few times, but it basically shaves off a level of metal on the rotors to make them smooth again. If they can't be cut, and you feel the pulsations, then you need to replace the rotors
