'97 E420 New Brake Pads

I looked around and couldn't really find anything with much info. I am looking for a step by step "how to" for replacing all four sets of brake pads. They are not worn down, I just bought the Axxis Deluxe Plus pads to cut down on the nasty brake dust. I am tired of cleaning it off my AMG wheels. I also got the brake paste and all new brake pad sensors. I am very mechanically inclined and fix almost everything myself. I'm sure I can figure it out as I go but I thought it would be better to have some tips from the pros to make things go smooth. If there is anything specific to be careful of or that needs special attention, please let me know. Any constructive info is appreciated. Thanks.

Yup, follow the above link and go down to the section that covers the W210 single piston floating caliper. While you are there, make sure the disks are not worn below the min thickness stamped on them. In my experience, the rotors typically last 2 sets of pads before they wear down too thin.
