getting the bushings out....easiest way i found was to take a drill bit and drill the rubber out to loosen them up then a good swat with a hammer...

put on new EBC vented rotors and pads....

alignment i can have done at work, or i can do it myself at school as we've got an alignment rack. For now i'll find exactly what's clunking and change it. but i do have to do the entire front end sooner rather than later.
