Are there any special tools or tricks needed to change my pads and rotors on a base model C6?  I ordered Centric premium rotors and StopTech pads that will be here Friday.  I'm supposed to take it to Just Brakes on Saturday.  I was going to have them machine my old rotors and keep them as spares or for a track day set with some Carbotech pads.  I'm not sure I trust them to do it right.  It's the Just Brakes on Northern and the loop 101 in Peoria.

It's a slapper-easy as pie!  If you're not flushing teh fluid (which you should do anyway, with Motul or ATE Blue), then all you'll need is a pad-spreader.  Rotors just slide off and on, but put a dab of anti-sieze on teh studs.

Hopefully the new rotors and pads get here Friday.  They are supposed to according to the tracking info.

Pad-spreader? You mean like two screwdrivers?  :rolf
