Brake pad Installation
NOTE:To move the piston back into the caliper, the LH piston is turned clockwise and the RH piston is turned counterclockwise.

NOTE:A moderate to heavy force toward the caliper piston must be applied. If sufficient force is not applied, the internal park brake mechanism clutch cone will not engage and the piston will not compress.

Using the special tool (or equivalent such as OTC tool #7317A), compress the brake caliper piston into the caliper.
Clean the residual adhesive from the brake caliper fingers and pistons using the specified brake parts cleaner.
CAUTION:Do not allow grease, oil, brake fluid or other contaminants to contact the brake pad or caliper mating surface. Do not install contaminated pads.

NOTE:Install all the new hardware supplied with brake pad kit.

Install the new spring clips and brake pads.
Position the brake caliper and install the 2 bolts.
Tighten to 31 N.m (23 lb-ft).
If necessary, fill the brake fluid reservoir with clean specified brake fluid.
With the vehicle engine running, apply 89-133 N (20-30 lb) of pressure on the brakes for approximately 1 minute, to make sure the brake pads adhere to the caliper before any contamination can be introduced.
Test the brakes for normal operation.

hope this helps
