New Brakes


Recommended Posts

Finally got around to putting new brakes on the car.

New Rotors and Pads and caliper bolts.

Got them on Ebay for $199 plus $80 for the pads. Shipping was $40 OUCH.

So loran i have a question for you....

Got all the bits back together. Bleed the brakes etc...

When i turn left i get a clicking sound from the left rear wheel?

*NEW*

Seems some dust? Metal parts? something got into the crack between the brake rotor and the dust shield.

Cleaned it out and i can't hear the noise anymore....The metal parts i figure came from when the brakes

were made i guess!!!

It's more likely a small rock got caught up in the dust shield. It's not an infrequent occurence, but it is kinda worrysome when it happens.

Glad you got it all fixed.

Next i need the courage to do the wheel bearings.

Haven't decided if i am going to do the removal of the carrier and all or find the kit that lets me leave it on the car.

When doing the front left brake the bearing felt horrible. So i wonder what all the rest are like...
