I am curious if there are any special tools i will need, and also, is there any special processes i will need to make sure i complete. (outside the ordinary) The rear calipers might be ceased up because i noticed the rotors are very rusty and it appears they might not be working correctly.

Brakes I turned in my car to change my brake pads but, after 2 months it needed to be changed again. This time they said I also need a new brake disc. How is it within 2 months I needed to replace the pads and disc when it took me three years to wear down the original brakes? Now again I need to replace both pads and disc. It also makes a knocking sound when the brakes is not engaged. What causes this? Is it something the mechanic did that's not right.
It sounds like the rotor (brake disk) is warped. That would cause the pads to wear much more quickly because the disk "wobbles".\015\012The warped disk can also cause the noise, depending on how bad the warp is.\015\012When most shops ch ... 2004 Mazda 3
