Those brake pads are genuine oem pads so they are perfect and they come with all the necessary hardware.I think its the same kind of procedure for the ML320s too you just need that tool to push the caliper piston back i remember the mechanic when i did the front pads he used a hammer to push the piston back.What are the best brake pads out there to use? I'm thinking about these?

A hammer? Ouch.you just need that tool to push the caliper piston back i remember the mechanic when i did the front pads he used a hammer to push the piston back.
No lol he didnt hit the piston with the hammer he used the wood end of the hammer to push it in it just took 5 secondsA hammer? Ouch.
If you don't have a piston retraction tool, (most pro mechanics have this, a set is not an expensive tool, Matco Tools Rear Wheel Disc Brake Piston Tool = DB25 | eBay, for example), you can CAREFULLY pry the piston back using a screwdriver and the old pad (before you remove it, so the leverage is against the caliper housing and the pad itself and not the piston). Hammering a piston is a recipe for disaster. If that was an approved procedure, no one would ever need a piston retraction tool. Just IMHO.
