But seriously, if the tools were available, and there's someone willing, that has done it already, I'd be glad to help. I've done brakes but never on the 5th gen, would be good to have experience close by.

Are you planning full fluid change also?

Have to ... Pete won't let me run anything but his brake fluid that is apparently made from gold and costs somewhere near the neighborhood of 80 bucks a bottle....

Carbotech™ 913 Kelated Metallic™

A D.O.T.-approved high-performance compound for brake shoes on high performance street vehicles and race cars. Carbotech Kelated Metallic (CKM) achieves a very high coefficient of friction (approx. 0.48 to 0.50) by taking advantage of a chemical reaction within the friction mass, which creates a tri-alloy metallic film at the liner/drum interface when subjected to heat and pressure. Designed to overcome the shortcomings of other liner materials, CKM is a very versatile and provides excellent braking performance in a wide variety of applications. Excellent wear characteristics and a very high resistance to lock-up under hard braking. Optimal recommended operating temperature range is from ambient to 750°F.
Here's the fluid he wants me to use. Seems pretty bad ass.
