i didnt really look too in depth, but i found this write up. its for the 03-05, but if you scroll through the pages i believe it mentions the small differences for the 06+

DIY: Rotors and Pads

hope that helped, otherwise search a little bit lol

Quick question for my 06' 6s? On the front brakes, where should the LONGER caliper bolt be inserted..top or bottom. I replaced my brakes once before, but had NTB inspect my front brakes for a noise last fall, and they clearly screwed up the bolt replacement. While replacing my pads and rotors today, I found that on my drivers side, the longer bolt was in the top, and on the passenger side, the longer bolt was in the bottom hole? HELP...
