Question about 1998 GMC Sierra
No you don't. All you need to do if you have disc brakes is take the wheel off and then take the two bolts off holding the brake caliper on, and you have it off, thn you can replace the brake pads compress the piston on the caliper, put it back on the rotor, put the wheel back on and your done. Check the rotors out to see if they are smooth and not too much of a lip on the outside of the rotors. If they are too rough, the you replace them by taking too more additional bolts that hold the bracket the brake caliper bolts two(2 more bolts) and then tap the rotor loose with a hammer, replace.
I have replaced the front disc brakes on quite a few vehicles and just replacing the pads when you know what you're doing will take you 30 minutes tops. Add another 10-15 minutes if you replace the rotors.
