Anyone have a brake pad tutorial?

1. Jack up car
2. Take off wheel
3. Remove outer piece of caliper(the 2 smaller bolts that go into the caliper).
4. Remove old pads and use C-clamp or similar tool to push pistons back in.
5. CLEAN EVERYTHING and have rotors resurfaced if necessary. If not just clean them with some rubbing alchohol(not necessary if using same pad compound).
6. Install new pads and bolt everything back up.

If they play, I spray.

^^^ plus apply a LIGHT coat of some high-temp brake grease to the BACK of the pads where they make contact. This will quiet any potential squeeking issues. Also, spray those rotors with with a good quality brake cleaner.

Special tool for the rears is requried to depress the pistons. You can rent it at Autozone. Also check the sticky out in the GT Tech area - https://www.allfordmustangs.com/forum...ce-manual.html

The only person I know that would do that is a track dawg, but it is not necessary.
