Remember to not exceed 2 foot pounds. or 24 inch pounds of torque when tightening the four bleeder screws. Over tightening will result in a damaged caliper. The bleeder screws are the two small ones in the center of the caliper on both sides.
Take care not to cross thread the brake lines. You should be able to thread the majority of the brake line into the hole with little effort. If after a turn or two it becomes hard, STOP, and check that the line is not cross threaded.
Brake shims allow you to adjust for wear on the brake pads, There are thin and thick shims, removing them as needed will keep your brake working at peak performance. When new delivered the clearance is about 1.5mm per side between rotor and brake pads.
Life is what happens to you while you're planning on doing something else.
