Tools required to remove calipers and rotors 08 model?

What tools do you need to remove the calipers and rotors from a 08 Focus? Just a socket set, or are there any special tools I need to buy? THANKS!

no need for special tools, maybe a clamp so you can compress the piston.

1. Remove the wheel and tire.
2. Remove the brake caliper flow bolt and position the brake flexible hose aside.
^ Discard the 2 copper washers.
^ To install, tighten bolt to 48 Nm (35 lb-ft).

3. Remove the 2 brake caliper guide pin bolts and remove the brake caliper.
^ To install, tighten to 28 Nm (21 lb-ft).

4. To install, reverse the removal procedure.
^ Install new copper washers.
^ Bleed the brake caliper.

Removal
1. Remove the wheel and tire.
2. Remove and discard the dust cap.

3. CAUTION: Do not use power tools to remove the wheel hub nut or damage to the
spindle may occur.

CAUTION: If the bearing inner race(s) become separated from the bearing
assembly, a new bearing must be installed. Reassembly and installation of the
bearing that has become disassembled will result in bearing failure.

Remove and discard the wheel hub nut and remove the brake drum.

Installation

1. CAUTION: When tightening the new wheel hub nut, rotate the brake drum
counterclockwise until the correct torque is achieved or damage to the wheel
bearing may occur.

CAUTION: Avoid impact on the wheel speed sensor ring and any contact between
the sensor ring and a magnetic surface or damage to the sensor ring may occur.
Make sure the wheel speed sensor ring is clean or sensor failure may occur.

CAUTION: A new wheel hub nut must be installed or incorrect clamp load may
occur resulting in wheel bearing failure.

Position the brake drum and wheel hub assembly and install a new wheel hub nut.
^ While rotating the brake drum in the opposite direction, tighten the wheel hub
nut to 235 Nm (173 lb-ft).

2. CAUTION: A new dust cap must be installed or bearing failure may occur.

Install a new dust cap.
3. Install the wheel and tire.
