Also for those who have done the job your self, besides blue thread-lock for the bolts, anti seize/anti-squeak for the pads do I need anything else (e.g. do any of the clips fail .etc)?

Also any good guides to follow?

Thank you all.
Plan on rotors being needed unless you already checked your runout on them.
My brakes and rotors were shot at the same time, just over 30k miles.
You need a 7 or 8mm(i forget the exact size) allen key bit for the caliper bolts.
Replace the slider pins.
