Looking at the fronts, the only difference is the bolt size - 21mm instead of 18mm - and they are bigger. Still only two bolts. Similar bracket and overall design. Its still a single piston caliper and the tabs that go into the retainer clips are the same size on the replacement pads on the front and the rear.

Pretty straight forward. Follow the write up on project-jk.com. It covers everything even though they only do the rear.

If you need to change your front, change the back too. Everyone is having issues with the rear wearing before the front. I'd at least take a look.

It's easier to just take the caliper off and not the mounting bracket 13mm torqued to 26ft/lbs . Pry bar on between the rotor and old pad ...... no need for a c-clamp just presses on the edge of the rotor ..... very quick to change front or rear use medium (blue) lock tight on the bolts and you won't lose em' due to vibration ......... just sayin'
