First time DIY brake job. Need some assistance. 4.8i with adaptive drive.

Hey twh. If this procedure is successful and the X5 can roll, do I compress the piston in the caliper on the rear parking brake wheel the same as the front? I used a pry bar last time.

Front brake pads needed at 30K miles?

I replaced front brakes and rotors at twice the rate of my rears. I expect it based on my driving. My fault.
