Well, today I tackled my brakes in the rear due to unusual warm weather
And warm I mean a few digits above freezing lol.
The job wasn't bad. Hard to get the bolts out and that's typical I suppose. Job was pretty straight forward and while I was there I gave my calipers a really good cleaning and scrubbing with steel brush. The amount of build up and crud was crazy!!!!
Anyways, got rotors off eventually. Replaced with new ones and fresh set of pads. Applied anti seize in between rotor and hub assembly to help the future me and save some time getting a rusted rotor off! Applied brake grease on pins, caliper clips and piston ring.
If anybody reading this has questions let me know. I was gonna do a write up but hands too dirty for iPhone and was too busy to take pictured.
The job cost me $275. That's rotors, pads, brake kit (rubber for pins and new clips). The dealer wanted almost $800 to do this job. So..... I figured I saved a bunch. So I went out and got a new jack and jack stand ( 3 ton) steel brush kit and all the grease I needed!!
The $275 above includes all the above!!! Yes folks! All the above. How could I go wrong there!
Anyways, job well done and had dinner at the keg. Now I'm having a nice cold beer to celebrate
