Check that the caliper is free to slide on the mounting pins It is necessary so that the caliper body can self centralise and let the brake pads come of the disc rotor. When the body seizes on the pins then one side of the caliper will have the pad in constant contact with the rotor and makes for bad braking and low economy

Warm the vehicle first you may have to jack it up but you don't have to get the tires off to ground. With the vehicle off in park and the parking brake on and you should caulk the rear wheels with apeice of wood 2x4 4x4.Get a wrench that fits vary tight a box wrench is best you don't want to damage the head of this bolt the oil pan drain plug bolt. Loosen the drain plug so you can turn it with your fingers then put your oil pan under the plug and take it out all the way so the oil goes into the pan. Let it drain 10 minutes or so you can be working on getting the oil filter off. Depending where to filter is mounted on the bottom of the block or if you have remote oil lines that usely go the the bottom of the radiator where there will be a small axess door. You will need an oil filter wrench or strap wrenches work well to lossen the filter but don't remove until the oil is done draining from the engine. When the draining slows to a drip clean and install the oil drain plug don't try to over tighten it will have a gasket or seal you don't to over compress this gasket wipe clean with a rag. Then slide your oil pan under the filter and unscrew by hand this will get a little messy sohave a rag with you. You won't get a lot of oil that comes out of the engine but the filter will be full of oil and much heavyer then to new one. Try to flip it over so to oil goes into the pan then you can get the pan old filter out of the way clean where the new filters base gasket will contact wipe with the rag . Put a small amount of oil on the new filters base gasket you can stick your finger in the old oil and run it around the gasket screw it on by hand as tight as you can then tight en with your filter or strap wrench 1/4 turn Then put your new oil in read your oweners manual for engine capacity and look for with the filter because it will take more to fill the filter. Start check for oil leaks shut off check your oil on the dip stick there will be an opperating range over add oil and full you should be in the middle of that . Then pour the old oil in a container with a funnel and you can take to the auto parts store an dispose of it put the oil filter in the box the new one came in and your done as soon you take the vehicle down off the jack

My 2004 chevy blazer clunks only in 4whl drive, right front. Anyone know what it might be?

There is so much turning up there that it can be several things. The normal Balljoint problem can have the part slip in and out of its socket if it gets loose. Check your tierod ends for slack.
Sometimes Calipers can rock if they are failing to float properly with loose hardware. The front torque is changing from being pushed by the rear wheels to pulling with the front wheels.
This can affect how the Balljoints react as the sockets are getting torque differently than in 2WD. You are also using the CV joints to pull rather than coasting in 2WD. Check your end play for the front hubs; they used to be about .005 and you need Year model specific Specs to be sure.

Check out some 4-Wheeling Blog sites as they may know more about the common problems. There are so many things to check that a Blog may be your best source.

I have a 2004 chevy trail blazer ext 4 wheel drive does not work used it last week and was fine

When you switch from 2HI to 4HI, you should hear two distinctive sounds from under the truck, one is the transfer case actuator and the other is the front differential actuator. If you hear both and you still do not have power going to the front wheels, then there is a problem with the front disconnect assembly.

What is the measurement on the front wheel base from the inside of one tire to the inside of the other tire across from it? It is a 1994 Chevy S-10 Blazer 4x4.

There is no such measurement in print. It would greatly vary from truck to truck due to tire size, type, rim type, age of suspension or any other modifications. The wheel base measurement is from the center of the front tire to the center of the rear tire, this won't change.
