You will need 18mm.wrench for the bracket ,and they will be very tight because they have lock tight on the threads. the two bolts that hold on the caliper the top one you will not be able to remove all the way due to it hitting the leaf spring.so take bracket and all off and then separate the caliper from the bracket.once the caliper is off take the old brake pad put it up against the pistons because there are 2 take a big pair of channel lock pliers and squeeze the pistons in .next take clips off rotor that were put on at the factory then smack the rotor with a good size hammer on the part the pads ride on then they will slide off .that should do it

How do I stop brakes shuddering


If you are referring to the Brake Pulsating or Steering Wheel shaking when applying the brakes - that is more than likely warped rotors. Which may be that you are due for brake system maintenance/repair.
Usually that happens about when the pads are worn out. It will need the rotors turned or replaced and probably brake pads replaced also. With Disc Brakes front and rear you may be able to view the thickness of the lining on the pads through the openings on the wheels - depending on which wheels you have
NOTE: The cost of new rotors may be very close to the cost of turning your old ones - check this possibility - if so - buy new :)

Replaced front brakes and I still hear grinding, vechile is a 2004 4wheel drive chevrolet pickup


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.

How do you remove the rear rotors on a chevy avalanche 4x4 the rotor is stuck and won't come off.Is there a trick to it? I've tried hammer and prying it.


Well with the rotors on the rear you still have a drum with brake shoes in the middle for your E-Brake.Think you have to back off the parking brake nut at the equalizer(one cable into two) to get slack in the cable to back off the shoes inside.Well hope this helped and good luck.

Should just need a pair of pliers to push the piston back. Soak the rotors with PB blaster or similar overnight, or if replacing smack the **** out of them.
