    im doing my brakes for the first time, i bought a Chilton manual at a part store. it is for 93 -03 camaro and firebirds. it was $23 and will tell you how to do everything to your car with pictures. this is a very handy guide to have. like a flashlight in the dark. do yourself a favor and spend the $23.

    i just paid 20 bucks to a guy i work with to do it for me lol. i watched and learned. i would have done it myself and after seeing it done i'm sure i could have, but i didnt have a 3/8ths allen wrench which i would have needed and its really cold in NY right now and i dont have a garage to work in so i guess i took the easy way out but at least i know how to do it next time
