02 Brakes... should I try??

I was wondering if I should attempt doing the brakes or just bite the bullet and have the dealer do it...

I've read the issues with the rear abs and possibilities of damage....

I agree.

It can be messy... Fluid everywhere.
But other than that, a no brainer.

Rich, is there an online procedure spelled out? I see a few here and there, but it's a bit of a challenge to figure out what model years they actually cover.

EDIT:
Nevermind - I found it! Seems I've over looked a whole section of the site till now.
