Nope, ti'* just the two allen/torx bolts and it might need some help (prying with a screwdriver etc..) to come off.
You will need a c-clamp before re-installing if you are putting new pads on.

Tie the calipers up with string or rubber bands. Don't let them hang unsupported.

They're held on the the traditional GM 3/8" Allen bolts.
