Shifting is determined more accurately by rpm's not speed. If you have a tach in the car, run the motor up to where you feel performance "flatten out" Regard that as your max rpm (for all gears) shift as needed about 500-700 below that number and all will be fine. (example: if motor flattens out at 3500 rpm, you should be shifting at 3,000 rpm or if not accelerating hard, at 2,800.) Going above the limit (shifting later) puts you outside the useful torque range and is not helpful.

jack up car, remove the road wheels, at the rear of the caliper you will have 2 or 3 bolts holding the caliper onto the stub axle, remove the bolts and remove the caliper, remove the outer pad, leave the inner pad in place and use a "G" clamp to compress the brake piston until it has bottomed, if this is not done the new pads will not fit back over the rotor as the piston is too far out and the new pads are thicker than the old ones.
place the new pads in the caliper and fit over the rotor, replace the 2 or 3 bolts that hold the caliper in place, replace the road wheel, tighten the nuts and lower the car to the ground, pump the brake pedal to see if you have brakes, if you do have brakes take it for a test drive away from any traffic if possible
