BJ for my 2006 Focus ST + Calipers

Changing all four rotors and calipers. Powerslot rotors coupled with Hawk HPS street pads all around. When working on the rears, I found that they were wearing unevenly; the pad was so worn, the pin got stock in the bracket of the Caliper.

Apparently nobody carries rear brake brackets for the ST except the dealer. How much you ask? 170 freaking dollars for a bracket. New calipers-that come with brackets- are 50 bucks.

The point of this thread is to ask about changing the calipers and bleeding the rear brakes. Has anyone done this for the Focus ST? Any tips? I've never changed calipers before, is it difficult?

Thanks for any tips!

Bonus: New studly rotors, goodbye brake vibrations, hello negative G forces.
