Tools needed for changing brake pads and rotors?


So the only think I would need is a socket wrench with the proper sockets. Does anyone know the exact measurements I need? I have a 96 GT. Everything is stock.

Also should I install SS lines while I am doing it? I plan on doing a brake swap in the future, should I do it then?

The ss brake lines are nice. You'll also need a hex head but I forget what size. If I remember correctly you also need a 10mm and a 1/2 inch? I think?

You'll also need a C-clamp when changing the front pads and the correct caliper tool for changing the rear pads.

Should be a mix of 12 mm and 15 mm sockets (15 mm hold the bracket for the caliper). The front rotors you can use a C clamp to push the pistons back in, make sure to uncap your brake fluid reservoir. The rears you need the kit posted above, or napa/any auto store should also have a socket that can do it too. Rear caliper pistons need to be spun back in.
