Question about 1998 Chevrolet Tahoe
Sockets, Ratchet, C-clamp.
Remove the wheel, remove bolt at top of caliper (will be on the back, not the one that mounts the caliper to the hub, it will hold the 2 halves of the caliper together), the caliper should then slide out freely using the lower bolt as a hinge. remove the old pads and use a C-clamp to compress the caliper piston (they also make a special tool but a clamp works fine). Put the new pads on and bolt it back up. easy as pie! Be sure to pump the brakes a few times once it's all done to push the caliper piston back up to the pads otherwise they wont work the first few times. :-P let me know if there are any more questions.
