Ron, This does not look like what I am looking at. I am looking at the rear caliper and it seems to be pinned not bolted at the top and bottom. I have not gotten to the front yet. Can you help me with the back assembly?

Im sorry I thought you needed the fronts. Let me send you the rear instructions.

Here are rear instructions.

How do you bleed the brakes once all the pads are replaced?
If you didnt open the system you dont need to bleed them.
