Default Front Brake Tools for pads

Well, finally got some Stop Tech pads, but I am unsure of what tools I will need. I will be getting some metric sockets and end wrenches. I ascertain I will need allen wrenches too (?)

Hey,

just did my pads yesterday.

you'll need to remove your wheels (of course). And a 14mm socket to remove the bolts holding the caliper to the "frame?". All you need to do is remove the two bolts on the outside, or even just the bottom one (loosen top one), and dwing the caliper up and have it rest on the rotor/guard.

Also want to think about maybe a C-clamp and a piece of wood to push back the piston (I used the old pads) since the new pads will be thicker than the old ones and you can't fit the caliper over them. took me only about 10 minutes per corner.

Just make sure when you compress the pistons that you take the cover off the brake fuild resevoir so that it's easier to compress. Keep an eye on the resevoir to make sure it doesn't overflow. Use a vampire syringe to suck out any fluid before it overflows. You may also want to use a coat wire hanger or something similar to keep the caliper up so that it doesn't fall down on you while you're working.
