No tricks, really. If you're you gonig to do the fluid, plan on doing
all four calipers. Other than that, keep in mind that it takes about
500 miles for the brake friction coefficient to really .. uh..
maximize. In other words, your braking capabilities are reduced for
awhile after you put on new pads and rotors.
