great guide mate ;)

i personally use slip joint adjustable pliers to compress the piston in the caliper tho. when doing your back discs and brakes you need to have 2 new "anti-rattle" clips for the rear calipers and you may also need to loosen to handbrake adjuster to slacken the contact between the handbrake pads and the inner disc surface ;)

Where can I get these anti rattle clips from? Or will they come with new rear discs and pads?
