don't know about this exact car, but most brake calipers use either a 3/8th inch allen (hex) head or a T-50 torx head bit. The Hex wrench is what I would get without seeing this. I have also used a ratchet extension on some cars.
i just changed my front rotors and pads on my 2001 escape, 6 cylinder. everyone was wrong on the wrench sizes, including the idiots at my local ford dealer. to get the brake calipers off I needed a 7mm hex bit. to get the caliper bracket off I needed an 18mm socket, it was a very easy job but check your wrench sizes first, it seems that every year and model uses different sizes.
This is a fairly involved job. You will have to remove the brake assy, then seperate the ball joint and remove the axle assy. You will need a seal puller to remove the axle seal (At trans I assume) and a seal driver or something flat to install the seal. You will also need a 32mm socket ( if my memory is correct ) for the axle nut and a torx or hex socket for the brake caliper and a splitting fork for the balljoint. Be sure to tourque the axle nut to spec when reinstalling or you will be replacing a wheel bearing next. Hope this helps...Good Luck.
