you don't need any speciality tools just a good ratchet set, i just did mine a few weeks ago and i had never done a brake job before.

You don't have allen wrenches?

That's $8.00

I have needed them on other auto's myself but I have not done supra brakes yet either. Maybe some open faced wrenches and a socket set maybe some pliars. Nothing big on brakes unless you have an upgraded kit.

you need ratchet and sockets... you also need something to compress the cylinder like channel locks or a C Clamp or something, thats it. very simple.

Front calipers on MK3's have 1 bolt holding them on, I'm pretty sure its 13mm. Not allen head. Rear calipers also have 1 bolt holding them on.

Its a pretty wierd set up, as far as the sliding pins are concerned.

i changed them yesterday. your right they were really easy to change it was just figuring out how to get the calipers off that was a bitch. i ended up having to take a breakline bracket off so that i could rotate the calipers enough to get them off. i hope i did that right haha. but they work fine now thanks to all of you.

Sometimes it seems intimidating to do things you aren't used to, especially if you haven't done them before.

Just have some confidence in your abilities dude.
