i need a picture of rear brakes

hey guys i have a 2000 jeep grand limited with Akebono calipers. i need a picture of the rear brakes... i tore them down for powder at like 4 am and for the life of me can not figure out how this clip goes on them (the front metal retain clip) i checked the service manual but it does not outline the process... almost done... these ball joints and tie rods where a *****! man did they need replaced!

Those clips suck!

I've spent a couple times goofing with them and get thoroughly frustrated. Then suddenly I grab the thing differently, I dunno, but they slide right in like butter?

Note I said a couple times... If I could remember the trick between intervals of goofing with them myself, I'd let you know. But there is hope they'll go in without scratching, like I said when they finally go in they go in pretty easy.

If your powder coat scratches from reassembly, you got terrible quality work or powder. A good job takes a lot of work to scratch.

i do powder coating for a living bud... iOur shop runs 24/7 on custom coating jobs... these are degreased, outgassed, blasted, primered (2 coats) base coat, candy flake top coat and cleared wiht a super durrable clear... it will not crack flake or chip no matter what happens... but powder still scratches if you take metal edges to it... come on now even steel, chrome, hell even glass will scratch... we are not working wiht tungston here bud... the benifit of powder isnt so much scratch protection (although wiht a SD powder it is much more resestant) it is durrability...
Everything i own is coated... my harley and chopper top to bottom, all my custom builds.. car wheels, snowbobile parts, snowmobile trailer... you name it... i put everything to the test... not really sure where you heard that powder does not scratch... but it does not chip or flake if done right or crack... but still scratches


the clips where not nearly as complicated as they looked, i got the fins under the brackets wiht one peg in, then held that in with my finger and used a long nose plies to put in the other one... 1-2-3 was fast

we have stuff shipped to the shop from all over the country... we are in the NW burbs of chicago and got in 4 sets of vet wheels from Cali yesterday... custom colors and masking and coating work is hard to come by in powder... that is what we specialize in... not sure how the sponsership thing on this site works and dont want to step on toes... if you wnat the link to the website just let me know bud i can PM it to ya...
this is one of my fav colors we have done on a solid set of wheels, it is called speedway black, looks insane! we have actually shot this same powder and used a satin clear over it for a mustang as well and completely had a diff look, great powder

I used a pair of vise gripes to put the wire back in. I think i put the short side in first and then the long side. That made is too easy, after hearing a the hoopla about that wire being a pain. This turn out to be alot less of a fight.

They will go in easily without pliers of any sort... In my experiences mentioned above, I started with pliers and then actually fitted them by hand.

Just for your info in case you decide to do any brake work the calipers with the spring are the old style Teves. Akebono do not have the spring and don`t use the open style mount.
