brakes brakes and more brakes

hey guys.. was out wheelin last night and my brakes pretyt much faded away.. the rig's got about 120k on it now and was wondering how hard it would be to just replace the whole caliper and rotor on the fronts. I've never bled brakes before so how much trouble am I going to get myself in?


Awwwwwwwwwwww... So he wants to go OFF-ROAD does he????

Easy job. Buy a shop manual so that you will be familiar with the procedure and torque ratings. I bought rebuilt calipers about 4 years ago for 15 bucks each!! They still work great.

Other Tricks I won't tell to just anybody!

you're taking up too much space.

I took my Jeep to JustBrakes yesterday to get my brakes done... I would have done them myself however, I bought the Jeep used by 2 other owners and wanted it all checked out... Glad I did, but 500 bucks later everything is all good.

500 bucks! screw that.. thik i'll do this.. spend $100 on new calipers, z-rated pads, and new rotors.. unbolt them, put them on, and then bleed the brakes with new fluid.. i figure the previous owners never did a damn thing about rebuilding the calipers or bleeding the old grimy fluid..

No I took mine in to have it all check out because of the multiple owners and while they were at it I had them do the brakes at the same time.
