    Simplest job in the world. Look in the resources section here, read around on the net, ask at your local car store. You'll want to compress the brake cylinder to remove the caliper and fit the fatter, new pads / rotor. A nice big 6" C-clamp does the job.

    Just to clarify a bit......that would be the caliper pistons to be pushed back in. If there is any roughness or binding, or excess force needed to push the pistons in then you should overhaul or replace the calipers. Be sure to lube the slider pins and boots well, plus you'll need a 9mm Allen bit socket to remove the calipers from the pad carriers.
