What tools will I need to change my front brake in the X? I dont want to get started and find out I have the wrong size wrench.

Sorry if this has been covered already.

Geeze!

I didn't see your "J/K" for about a minute. I was about to freak out and blow this thread apart!

I hope there is no one out there that dumb... unfortunately I know there is.

That was the easiest set of brakes I have ever replaced. It only took me about 15 minutes per wheel, including tire removal. The only hitch was that I had to do the one wheel again, because I forgot that little V-shaped spring thingy.

I think you guys have given me the confidence to do this myself. I'm at 36k miles and should probably expect to do this soon. Are the rear brakes any more complicated?

I did the brakes myself (changed my rotors and pads) and have never done a brake job in my life. Easy as pie.

Oh and the rear brakes are exactly the same.... just a little smaller. LOL
