If you are going to do this type of job, you need a copy of the manufacturer's service manual. It will have pages of instructions with line drawings, torque specs, and a list of special tools, if needed. You can also buy a subscription for just your car for a year online, but I prefer paper. Those sites include AllData and Mitchell-On-Demand. Those are what most independent repair shops subscribe to.
Once you have the service manual, come back here before you start tearing things apart. There is way more to a professional brake job than simply hanging a few new parts on the car. I will share some things to do to prevent causing squeals and other noises, and things you must avoid.
Be sure the car is supported solidly on jack stands, and you must use a click-type torque wrench when tightening the lug nuts.
