Ya replacing the pads and rotors is no sweat. If you want a manual I would recommend a Chilton's but Alldata is great if you wanna pay for it.

I would disagree some with that. Don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with new rotors or drums, but sometimes on problem cars, resurfacing is the way to go. Because as the miles are put on the car the pads wear and the rotors become impregnated with brake dust. although turning removes some of the dust and metal, there will still be brake dust in the metal. What this does is it helps wear in the pads and helps keep the noise down. Also turning them while they are still on the car has a better chance of removing pulsation.
But sometimes its cheaper to buy new rotors than is it to pay a tech to turn them. If your doing it yourself I would just get new, unless your were going to pay to have them turned, because I wouldn't trust the high school kid behind the counter of auto zone to do the job right.
