my friend lol, The fronts were easy, but we weren't able to do the rear pads and rotors. I had to take it somewhere for that.

maikal, there are no sensors needed. The brakes on your X are not any different than most other cars other than the fact that you need a special tool ($10 at most local parts stores) so you can wind the rear pistons back into the calipers. Keep in mind that the direction that you turn the piston is dependent on the side of the car. So, when you go to do the rears, turn the piston say 90 degrees and see if the piston is going in or out. If it is going in, keep turning. Going out, turn the other way. Also, you will find it easier to move the pistons in on the rear if you open the vent port. But, when you do this, bleeding/venting the rear brakes afterwards is highly recommended.

If you need more info on doing a brake job, let us know.
