Default Newb brake/rotor question

Hi, i plan on changing my brake pads with Hawk pads and the rotors with direct replacment Slotted rotors from www.daddysscp.com. 2002 WRX

I have found the howtos for the brake pads etc. i am not changing the SSlines or caliper or anything. My question is, is it as simple as unbolting rotor, bolting new one on, then replacing the brake pads? Do i need to bleed the brakes? or can i just eye the brake fluid level? since i am not changing any lines or rotors im guessing i dont need to bleed anything. Thanks for any insight

You don't have to bleed the brakes but you might want to since its pretty easy to do once you have the wheels off. You might check to see if you are due for a fluid change. Might be a good time to do this. I would consider using a high temp synthetic fluid. I really like my SS lines. Really gives you a lot of pedal feel.

Yup, just unbolt the calipers and screw a pair of M6 ( i think it was) bolts into the little holes on the rotor to bring thme out. Remember they're directional (the rotors ie). Would be a good idea to bleed the fluid if not done before.
