Smile How to Install Brakes for '04 GTO

Hello Everyone, I'm new to this forum so please be gentle. I want to change my front and rear brake pads and my front rotors. Problem is that I need instructions. I'm good at following instructions so if anyone knows of a good site where to find them, would really appreciate it.

Also, read about torque to yield. Are there any tty bolts I need to switch and if so, which ones?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Check the knowledge base. Here is a link on how to change the rotors. If you have ever done pads, you'll have the calipers off to do so when you are doing the rotors.

There are no torque to yield bolts on the brake calipers. Did not look at the links, but brakes are easy, remove the 2 bolts going thru the caliper, pull caliper off, remove old pads, use C clamp or specal tool to squeeze piston in, install new pads, install caliper. I coat the bolts lightly with anti sieze, not sure if others do.
