Akebono Caliper

Does anyone have a picture of the akebono caliper with the clips and pads loaded? Want to be sure I have this put together right.

Thanks that's a good write up too. Hopefully my rotors won't need that much persuasion!

Yeah, I have never had rotors be so stubborn.

Others have actually put a piece of wood between the rotor and control arm, started the jeep, and turned the wheel using the power steering to pop the rotor off. I guess it works for the fronts, never done it myself. Just keep your feet away from the brakes when you have the caliper unloaded.
