Question about 1998 GMC Sonoma
This is a little tricky, if it is the round type as I recall...
The best way to remove it is rotate the clip till you locate small hole/opening. Insert a small punch into clip and open it up/spread the clip apart. It best to purchase a new clip (cheap) before removing the old one. Install the new clip with a flat blade screwdriver by pushing straight onto pedal rod. .

Hi joelalthomas, if they replaced your brakes and you never even made it home they had better warranty the work and as for the "it was a common problem on 2002-2004 trucks" well check for Chevy recalls as this is a safety issue that would have been corrected at no expense to the vehicle owner, do a little more research my friend and let me know what happens, I will check around a little as well in the meantime I would find a new garage.Do not pay any more as you said your brakes worked fine until they worked on it good luck to you As for your 4x4 did you look at the left side when you did the right side? and were they bled off properly? you can visually check to see if the calipers are functioning

you will need a big c-clamp to compress the piston back inside the caliper too when you remove your old pads. Otherwise you will never get the new ones to fit over the disc.

jcakey: My name is Roger and I will answer your question for you. From what you describe the problem sounds like a bad vacum brake booster. A simple way to check is to do the following. With the engine off. Press on the brake pedal 4 or 5 times. This will deplete all vacum in the booster. Next start the engine while holding your foot on the brake pedal. The pedal should drop a couple of inches. If the pedal does not drop. The problem is the brake booster. When the booster is bad you will hear a hissing sound inside of the truck when you apply the brakes..
If the master cylinder is faulty you will wave mushy brake to no brakes.Your ABS and brake failure lights will be on. Should you need further help please just ask. I will be glad to help you. Please rate this answer as this is how we know your answer was useful.Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

check wheel bearing... and make sure that the metal shims are installed with the pads. they prevent noises

Make sure you have bled all the air out of system.
Start bleeding from the furthest wheel first and work your way to the closes to master cylinder last,
You have everything else covered.
