Pretty straight forward. Are you replaceing just the pads, or the rotors as well?

Like Vitalidle said , it's pretty much the same as any other brakes. I always use a big c-clamp to push the pistons back in on the calipers to make room for the new pads instead of opening the line and trying to bleed them when done , but that i'm sure is nothing new to anyone.

Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's modded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC's poo on any of it, never will.

It's common for the guide pins to be siezed for the front calipers. I had to use a torch with a 2lb mallet and drift to get them free. New guide pins and rubber boots are available at the parts store.
