Question about 2006 Ford F-150
How do you install the Front Brake pads with the pad springs installed on the pads?
Heck thats easy
first put boards infront and behind rear wheels
2 place jack under truck at front remove some weight from wheels
3 free the front wheel nuts
4 relieve the rest of the presure from front wheels
5 remove wheel nuts and tire from spindle
6 crank wheel out meaning right wheel right turn
7 now you can see the caliper sorta top front
8 loo on the inside of the caliper see the rubber looks likee plugs
they are on sone models they are actualy pluged still
9 get out those alan keys unside the ruber sleve there are 2 alan screws righty tighty lefty loosy right? )
completely unscrew the alan bolts lift the caliper off the mount you might need a pry bar but dont be afraid to pry a bit
once caliper removed theres only 1 thing left break pads
remove old ones 1 at a time replace with same use break lube in the sliders not on the pads clean em out if truck is newer it wont take much heck if you want paint the calipers since there off and hanging free any way
NOW DO NOT BE A MORON RUBBER WILL BREAK DO NOT JUST DROP THE CALIPERS AND LET THEM HANG BY THE HOSES THEY WILL STREACH AND WEAKEN THEM AND THEY WILL FAIL UNDER BREAKING...
USE A COAT HANGER BENT LIKE AND S AND HANG THE CALIPERS OFF THE FRAME OR SPRINGS
