you will get better results if you change both sides at same time. when changing calipers you can buy a set of balanced and calbrated calipers. this means that both calipers are matched and will perform evenly on both brakes.
bad calipers change them yesterday not tomorrow
You will need the tool to retract the calipers. The piston in the rear calipers have to be turned clockwise as you compress them back in.
This will greatly depend on what kind of brakes you have and which parts you are trying to replace. Do you have disc or drum brakes? If you have disc brakes, do you want to replace the calipers, pads, or rotors? If you have drum brakes, do you want to replace the drum, or the shoes?

My olds has 4 wheel disc brakes, and I had to buy a kit to change the rear pads. I'm not 100% sure about the pontiac, but Most GM rear calipers actually Screw back, unlike the front calipers, which merely push straight back. I got the kit at harbor frieght for around $40.

If the emergency brake is on the calipers, you need a special tool to compress the caliper. This should be rentable from the parts store.
Push in. I've change my front pads several times and they compress straight in.
First thing is to check the fluid level and check for leaks. Also check the calipers and pads for proper installation and movement.
It depends on how much of stuff you want to replace. Usually people replace only braking pads front and rear ones. Thus,you will need two pairs of front pads and two pairs of rear ones. If you want to change calipers also then you will need + two front calipers. You need to change one only in the case when it's sticky. You want to change breaking cylinders you will need + two cylinders for rear brakes. You need you change it only in the case if it's leaking.
