Others might think different, but it's not straight forward, but it's not hard either. It's a 21 year old car, and things rust and stick together. You don't just take the caliper off and the rotor falls off. You are halfway into a knuckle rebuild to get the rotor separated from the hub body. Does it really need rotors? Will it need new calipers? Are they as old as the truck?would anyone be able to tell me if it's difficult to change the rotors, pads and bleed the system of '88 62? i'm kind of newbie to doing my own work.
If you are new to doing your own work, you should get with a buddy that has done brake work (successfully) before to mentor you during the experience. Even better if it is a Cruiser Head that has been into the axel/brakes a few times.would anyone be able to tell me if it's difficult to change the rotors, pads and bleed the system of '88 62? i'm kind of newbie to doing my own work.
Brake fluid should be clear. It should be changed out every couple of years or so. If it is brown, it has been in their way too long. Brake fluid is designed to absorb moisture and if not changed on a regular basis can lead to corrosion/rust in your brake system--brown is bad. I encourage you to get some help with your brake project. There are several options available to you. But you shouldn't be learning how to wrench by doing your front brakes. Get a mentor.well i'm hoping to that my calipers are fine b/c i saw that they were real expensive. i changed the rear drums about a year ago and the pedal is real spongie.....reeeal spongie. and my brake light just came on but the e-brake is frozen(doesn't work). i checked my brake fluid level and it's ok but verycloudy brown...is this normal?
any help to my questions is appreciated
