    Hi, to change the front pads do I drive out the 2 pins, then remove the one bolt in middle same as Brembo style?

    Could not find any posts or youtube videos on base GT brakes.

    Does not look like you need to swing up (like others) or remove the caliper.

    All went well, thanks great design. Not sure who came up with pins instead of lifting caliper however it is a great idea.

    My C3 Corvette has something similar 1 pin through the pads and a cotter pin.
