Push the piston back into the caliper (there is a special tool for this but I’m not that special…..so big wrench really does it just fine)

I forgot to Mention the spring goes on the outside you see its there^^^^

The Driver Side is the same Procedure..!….Except theres the Sensor

You can replace it to make your light go out if its worn down really low
or you can cut off the end and splice the wires together. I didn’t order one but I probably will later.

Now the rears are basically the same.

To help get the rotors off I hit them first and lossend the small allen bolt before I took the caliper off.

Now take out those 16mm bolts.

I hit my wrench with the wood part of a hammer to break them loose

After you pry off the caliper Now you can take the rotor all the way off

Clean up the hub.

WTFF okay the e-brake is a drum brake whatever. So you have to adjust the auto adjuster to make it small…Theres a tool to measure the diameter of the shoes then the diameter of you hub to make the right adjustments but we didn’t have it so just do trial and error….the rotor is sopposed to fit over the shows snuggly!

Snug

Clean these up again

Now the Passenger Side Rear has a sensor. (this sensor was not worn down so we put it back in there…it has a lil clip that keeps it in place.

So lets make this clear there are 2 sensors Front Driver and Rear Passenger.

Now i was thinkin about doing a DIY: wheel aligment.. but being how the machine and aligment rack cost well over $25,000 its not really a diy job

You start by torquing all your wheels to 80ftlbs. and i put 36psi in the rear and 32 psi in the front
