Honestly, replacing your brakes is one of the easiest "major" maintenance items that you can do, particularly on the front.

I'm not 100% sure, but I believe it will require only:

12mm 6-point socket and applicable ratchet.
4-5" C-Clamp
Whatever is required to remove your tires (DON'T FORGET JACK STANDS)
Patience
Common Sense

There's only 2 bolts that hold the caliper onto the mounting bracket. It's a very simple design. Only 2 more bolts and you can have the rotors off... (I think those are 14mm)

...
Oh good. My Dog found the Chainsaw.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
