If they are disc brakes, no just sockets a ratchet and a C-clamp.
Drum brakes - need a spring tool.

you will need a big socket to remove the axle nut--about 20 mm or so. Other than that, I don't think so. Procedures from autozone.com below. it doesn't mention having to press bearing into hub.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Remove or disconnect the following:

    Front wheels Hub nut Brake caliper Rotor ABS sensor Wheel hub from steering knuckle and driveshaft Wheel bearings
To install:
  1. Install or connect the following:

    Wheel bearing into hub Wheel hub to steering knuckle and driveshaft; torque bolts to 41 ft. lbs. (56 Nm) ABS sensor; torque to 6 ft. lbs. (8 Nm) Brake rotor and caliper New flanged hub nut; torque to 134 ft. lbs. (182 Nm)

1. my 96 ford windstar's tail lights dont work, but the bulbs are ok. 2 I want to change my rear brake shoes; are there any special tools I need?


If tail lights don't work, check your dimmer switch for any shorts. If the brake lights don't work, then check the brake switch behind the brake pedal. You can test them with a multitester.
For brake shoes you need socket or star wrench, and needle nose pliers for the springs unless you have a spring too. If you have disc brakes, then socket set and a c-clamp to push the pistons back in.

Need 2 change brakes on 94 cadillac deville


Brakes are something that most drivers should not attempt mostly because when you step ,on the brakes you want to stop. You don't say if you have caiper brakes all around or just on the front. I have worked on brakejobs for quite a few years and always do the calipers too. repairs are expensive nowadays as with most repair shops. most shops charge one for things that they don't change so it is expensive. To do a brake job properly one needs specialized tools and know how.

You need to bleed this system with the special tool that holds the ABS solenoids open, it plugs into the ABS brake controller, if you don't do this there is no way to get the air out of the system, that is why your pedal is low.
