    I bought new pads today and I need a little advice swapping them out... I just need to remove the calipers by removing those 2 bolts on the back, then remove old pads, compress calipers, replace pads, and then calipers right? Any tricks to doing the front pads? Any help is appreciated.

    Take the cap off the brake fluid resivor before you compress the calipers. Just loosen it enough to let the fluid expand when they are compressed. :)
