Not really. After replacement, start the car and slowly depress the brake pedal a few times to get the fluid flowing back to the calipers (you'll be compressing the pistons when changing pads). Take the car for a couple slow stops at say 10, then 20, then 30 MPH.
Then, drive it around the block, and you'll be all set.....just avoid hard stopping if you can for the first 10 or 20 miles.
After installing new pads make 6 to 10 stops from approximately 35 mph with moderate pressure. Make an additional two to three hard stops from approximately 40 to 45 mph. Do not allow the vehicle to come to a complete stop.When completed with this process, park the vehicle and allow the brakes to cool completely before driving on them again. Do not engage the parking brake until after this cooling process is compete
