Rear disc brakes? My '04 KT2500 HD used similar "floating" rotors. Also, be sure to clean up or replace the metal guides the new pads ride on, mine have stuck and caused severe wear on the inside of the rotor, while the outside pad had minimal wear. I used a file to smooth up the notches on the pads and some steel wool to clean up the salvageable clip-on guides. Check the steel brake lines while you are down there for rust/corrosion, this is an issue for these trucks.
That is if you have the same braking system as the 2500, if not these guys have a series of great videos pertaining to your specific model.
Jack up the front end remove tire onthe brake pad assembly there will be two Hex head bolts these will be probably a 3/8 u can use a big Alan wrench u will also need a small pipe to use a breaker bar and some WD 40 as these bolts are probably rusted just a bit,once u have the bolts out u should be able to remove the brake pad assembly,u might need a rubber malet to help with this,OK u got this off take the new brake pads out of the boxs,pay speial attention to the back of them,now take a big screw driver a pry just one of the brake pad off if u do the side with the caliber on it,(this is the round thing that pushes the brake pad on to the disk to stop the car)There is a clip take this clip off look that the back of the brake pad find the new brake pad that has the same notches in it put the clip on it the same way it came off put it back on the caliber,ok take the other one off,nothice the clip might be made in to the brake pad assembly on this side if not put clip in to same notches,Ok now u have replace the brake pads u will notice that the brake assembly will not go back on, not to fear take a Clean rag place it on the pad on the caliber side get a pair of channel locks now compress the caliber abit now it should side right on replace bolts and u are good to go do other side the same way.
May not be make and model exact Can't even start unless you got a couple of clamps, take off tire, you'll see the brakes above mounted on a shiny disc kinda like the big wheel on price is right, There will be to set pins on the top front and back, push them out and the whole brake system should just slip off, removing the worn pads here's the tricky part, it's easy but if done wrong or to fast you'll blow the seals and need new brake calipers. You should be able to see two round pistons, place a stick or plate (wood is preffered) across BOTH of these pistons and then use your clamp to SLOWLY push them down and back in,not easy and I need two clamps usually. TAKE YOUR TIME ON THIS PART! then when their flush clip in your new pads, place your caliper back on the price is right disc and put your set pins back in and your pretty much good to go. My Dad calls it nose bleed brakes cause your push on the pedal is just a touch now and you whack your head on steering wheel giving yourself a nosebleed!!!!
very easy prob the easiest car to change pads on. just remove the front wheels then get a screwdriver and wedge back the piston then pull the little clip out of the pin on the bottom of the brake caliper tap out pin and remove pads the do it in reverse
Install a large C-clamp over the top of the brake caliper housing and against the back of the outboard brake pad.
Slowly tighten the C-clamp until the piston pushes into the brake caliper enough to slide the brake caliper off the rotor.
Remove the C-clamp from the brake caliper.
Remove the lower mounting bolt from the slide pin.
