PossibleIf it's the same as a 1998 setup, I have a hex bit that fits on a 3/8 ratchet handle. Any auto parts store can probably show you the bit.

My 01 1500 4x4 has 2 13/16" hex bolts. Spray with penetrating oil first and use a breaker bar with your 3/8 or 1/2" ratchet, those puppies require lots of leverage to break loos. I use an 18" piece of 3/4" (inside diameter) black steel pipe to slip over the ratchet handle.

Lift the car, remove the tire, remove the brake shoe/calipers and remove the old brake pads. Put in the new brake pads, replace the brake shoe/calipers, replace the tire and lower the car.

it is possible that your brake hoses are bad and soft not letting the brake fluid back out of your calipers
