Rear Brake Change Questions

One of my upcoming "projects" will be changing out the rear brakes. I plan on doing the rotors,pads,and the parking brake shoes. Here are the questions....

Im planing on going with the the GENUINE Mercedes pads and ATE rotors. Is this ok ??

Anything else I should replace ?

Is it easy ?

Very easy!
Flush your brake lines when you get a chance; you should be doing that every year anyway.

Easy enough. Just make sure your parking brake is disengaged before you do it. I had mine engaged and it was a pain.
