I'm thinking of one "must have" and one "helpful" item...bleeder & brake line wrench.

The hardest thing is to get the caliper bolts loose. Better go hose those suckas down with some Liquid Wrench...now.

You'll need someone to help you or if you're going solo, you'll need a vacuum bleeder. Work on the brake furthest from the master cyl. Once complete bleed the brakes then move to the next brake that second furthest from the master cyl, etc. Make sure you keep an eye on the brake fluid level and refill accordingly otherwise you may suck air into the brake system. Good luck.

If you need more information than this, then I would suggest you get a manual.

LINE WRENCH!!

Stop by and u can borrow mine. Little bastards expensive.

Pick up some loc-tite for the caliper bolts.

Torque wrench, brake fluid.

Its truly unbelieveable how tight these parts are to break free for the first time. So be careful. I had to crank hard to get the factory line to stop leaking after installing my SS lines.

Give me a shout tomorrow.
