Dear Stray Shims.........these shims that came along with the new brake pads are designed to be installed on the non friction side of the brake pad(the side that does not rub up against the rotor). These are designed to absorb a little runout so that you can have a better pedal. When you install these shims make sure to install them with brake temp approved adhesive so they don't shift and start rubbing against the rotor. Most shims are shipped with adhesive already on them though. If you have any other questions you're more than welcome to get back to me.....THX and I HOPE I COULD HELP!!!

2005 Pontiac Montana SV6 Vibration after rear brake job sounds like driving on the side of road vibration. Only happens when lightly applying breaks. Why would this be

Could be loose caliper (unlikely but worth checking), bad pads (had them fall apart on me before when brand new), improper line bleeding (air bubbles in brake line), dirt on the rotor (brake cleaner will fix that. Remove tire and caliper, thoroughly spray down rotor, caliper and pads, let it completely dry and put back together). If none of those are the problem you may want to take it in for a brake system check, many places do that for free or cheap.

Trys to rock frwd with foot on brake. What might cause this?

Hi, it sounds like you need to replace your rotors. They are the round disks that your brakes clamp onto. They are most likely warped. If I recall the montana sv6 has rotors on the front and back.

No clunking until replaced front end brake pads and rotors. Pontiac Montana 2002 not a FWD. I'm not 100% sure but I also believe I can feel a vibration on steering wheel coming from front.

1. Have the caliper checked if the retaining bolts are fully tightened and all shims and pins are properly installed. 2. Was your rotors resurfaced??If not, The new pads are flat(new), and the rotor might be uneven causing the pads to vibrate. 3. If they aren't the rotors, inspect the CV shafts for tightening, or damage. Hopefully this helps

Front brake pads need to be changed, how?

Jack the vehicle u. Support it on jack stands. Remove front wheels. There are two bolts that hold the brake caliper on. Remove those. use a C-clamp to push the caliper piston back in. Install the new pads in the caliper brackets (pop into place). Put caliper back on, then wheel back on. Put vehicle back on the ground. Press brake until firm. Done.
