OK, I'm trying to put these damn new rotors on. I see i've gotta take the caliper off, but how? The big bolts, or the Torx crap?

Either way, those sonsa*****es are on tight. Don't tell me they're reverse threaded.

The torx ones will take off the calipers themselves, but leave the brackets behind.

Will the brackets be in the way of the rotor for removal? It looks like they will be...

As far as I know they will be.

yes and yes, the torx need to come out to remove the caliper and the other 2 need to come out to remove the brackets so you can get the rotors off,

I beg to differ. All you need to do is take off the hex bolts and remove the caliper and bracket as one unit. It isn't necesary to remove the torx if you aren't replacing the calipers

yeah, well, I can't afford pads at this time :/

I'm broke, and I'm sick of the shaking from bent as hell rotors

Oh, BTW, after breaking 2 ratchets on the bolts, my parents decided to give in and pay a mechanic to do it :/
