I think you are doing the right thing. If you can remove pads without a sledge hammer - happy days

make sure you put some copper grease in the area where the pin stay in contact with the calipers, it will make removal much much easier.

Uh and if you're planning on doing the rear brakes, make sure you have not only the torx sockets, but also the special tool to push and turn the piston back in, or it is gonna be a long, long day...
