Torque the lugnuts VERY carefully with a GOOD torque wrench as well to help prevent this from happening again.

Good equipment choices.

The job is quite simple.

1. Jack up car
2. Remove wheels
3. Unbolt calipers. They're bolted in place with two 3/8" allen head bolts.
4. Slide caliper aside
5. Remove old pads (they're clipped in place)
6. Slide rotor off hub
7. Clean new rotor with brake cleaner (to remove oils)
8. Slide new rotor on the hub
9. Compress the piston into the caliper housing. Use a C-Clamp.
10. Clip new pads into the caliper
11. Bolt the caliper to the knuckle
12. Reinstall the wheel
13. Torque the wheel lugnuts to 100 ft. lbs. in a criss-cross fashion
14. Verify the fluid level in the resivoir on the master cylinder is full. If not, add DOT 3 brake fluid to top it off

Very easy! 30 minute job.

Mmmm you are talking about premium rotors here. Cheapies cost me $25-30 and I think the Bendix were $50 each...but that'* with a HEALTHY discount.

The bendix ceramic pads were $60 for me.

Yes!!! Especially for all you lucky guys down in the lower 48 who do not have to pay the exorbenant shipping prices. Still not as bad as CA thought (no pun intended y'all). I have bought them for ~$30 a side while I was in GA and that was not all that long ago. Pads seem a little high as well $45 for. Maybe I buy cheap, but I have not had any probs with them though
