If you've never worked on a car before, it would be better that you find a reliable, not necessarily expensive, mechanic to replace your breaks for you. Of all the things you can do on your own car, unless you know exactly what you're doing, it's not worth compromising the integrity of your car or your life just to save a few bucks! Either way, good luck

A car jack, a pair of jack stands, tire iron, a good socket set, torque wrench, a wire to hold the calipers up, some brake cleaner, brake lube and a set of instructions. Like the above posts mentions, if you are asking this question we assume you never done this before. Research how to do a front disc brake job to see if you want to tackle it. www.youtube.com has some good generic videos you can watch to see if you'd like to try it. If you don't feel comfortable doing it, don't! You don't want to hurt yourself or others with a faulty install.
