Question help installing front rotors and pads

Does anyone have the tools and time to a fellow enthusiast out replacing my front rotors, pads and sensors?

I'm more then happy to help (so I can learn how to do this myself next time).

Thanks!

I would, but you're too far away. Honestly spend some time searching near and far. There is a tremendous amount of information which includes detailed pics and video. I taught myself this way and never had a problem or hang up. Its easy and it works. Good luck.

I want to do the brake job myself, I'm just a little nervous.

No special tools needed. I'd bet you'll be fine.

i just did mine, so i can help u if u want. the one thing i'd advise though if u track the car is to just delete the stupid wear sensors. mine were all melted and broke into several pieces due to the heat from the track, all 3 of them.

The DIY on this forum basically helped me avoid thousands of dollars in service labor. Seriously though. All you need is a good jack+stands, I think it's 7 allen to remove slider bolts and the rest of the tools are in a standard Canadian tire tool kit.
I enjoy the car even more after completing a job. Good luck and keep us posted.
