The caliper is fastened on using two bolts that you must remove. After removing the bolts pull the caliper straight up. The brake pads are just resting against the rotor and are held on by metal clips. Pull the old pads off, put the new pads on, put the caliper back on and put the bolts back in.

Stealth.

Gonna ditch the pipe after the muffler and do something else.

As for what muffler, it will probably stay stock.

You should go with a Borla Pro X/S. It's on the quiet side, but sill audible and won't annoy you on the interstate.

I don't want anything that sounds "redneck" or "ricey" so the Borla would be a suitable alternative. I like how the Nissan/Infinitis have a slight exhaust note to them, that is about how I'd like the truck to sound...

here's a lil walk-by of the new shoes...



THIS SOUNDS GOOD :-)
