Hello, the front pads are an easy job, biggest part to all the disassembly is whether the Rotors come off easy or not. You have many choices in pad composition and whether you want to keep old Rotors and recut them or just buy new Rotors.
\012
\012If you have a 4x4 the Rotors come off the same as in a 2 wheel drive. There are 2 mounting bolts for the Caliper and 2 bigger mounting bolts for Housing assembly. When you remove the Caliper, hang it with a rope or wire underneath the SUV. Do not let it dangle by its hose.
\012
\012There are mounting clips termed "Hardware" which must be replaced and you need to grease the hardware with a special brake grease like "Slid-ease". Another chemical for the pad is a red pad mounting paste which prevents rattles. Reassemble housing, pads and Caliper and when doing so, you need to compress the Caliper pistons to provide clearance for the new thicker pads.
\012
\012You can use the old pad and a "C" clamp or pry against the old pad to push in the Caliper pistons. Sometimes it helps to remove the Master Cylinder lid as fluid will return to the Master Cylinder.
\012
\012The rear brakes I recommend a Brake shop. You have 2 sets of brakes on each axle. If you decide just to throw pads on this end and the Rotors are good its like winning the Lottery. But if you have to remove the Rotors, you have to deal with the Emergency brakes. The E brakes need to be adjusted so the Rotor will come off and then you will appreciate a Brake shop.
\012
\012The Brake cables from the inside of your SUV to the rear wheels have to work or the E brakes won't. Some states with mandatory Vehicle inspections or Commercial DOT ratings require annual inspections.
\012
\012If you have any further questions you can use the reply feature on this site. I would also recommend using an Antiseize compound inside the rotors where the rotor contacts the hubs and stud bolts. I hope you find my solution very helpful.
