I am willing to tackle this job i have one or two really dumb questions: since they are anti-lock brakes do i need special tools and is it as straight forward as a regular brake job?

ABS is just the front according to the service manual. My 98 doesn't have ABS, had to replace everything on the rear drum set up. Prior owner was not good at keeping this straight.

ABS changes nothing within a brake. The rears sensor is in the differential it's not independent left vs right like the front.
