2003 Silverado 1500 4X4 long bed. are the rear brakes dual or single piston?


4WD with 6 lug nuts should be a single piston caliper. If for some reason you have a 8 bolt pattern the caliper will be a dual piston system. These should be limited to 3/4 4WD and 1 tons.

I just replaced the rear brake pads on my 03 Silverado 1500. at first it drove fine, but Ive noticed lately that the rear (disk) brakes are dragging and causing excessive heat. There is a noticable shimmy...


Your calipers are sticking and causing your brakes to drag.Did you clean and lube the caliper slides before you reinstalled them and did you have the rotors turned?I have had this happen to me after doing a rear brake job.One or both of the calipers would stick and I had to replace them.Which means you will have to bleed the rear brakes.(Rear only)Hope this helps and let me know if you have anymore questions.Good luck.

Rear brake job


pull the two bolts holding the caliper on and pull the caliper off now get a C clamp and compress the piston all the way into the caliper now remove the two bolts in the caliper hanger and remove the hanger now the caliper should just pull off ( if corroted hit it with a hammer ) now just put every thing back to gether the way they came off...............WHEN DONE WITH THE BRAKE JOB MAKE SURE TO START THE TRUCK AND PUMP THE BRAKES UNTIL THE PEADLE IS HARD. YOUR PEADLE WILL GO RUTE TO THE FLOOR AT LEAST ONE TIME MAYBE MORE.

How do I remove rear rotors for a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500hd


First....raise the vehicle safely, and remove the tire.
Second....get the tools to remove the brake caliper, and then remover the caliper and brakes.
Third....Get the tools to remove the caliper BRAKET that hold the caliper in place, Now after this is removed you'll have to use a rubber mallet or some type of bangin object to losen the brake rotor and it should pop or slide off. I've changed the rear rotors with my dad on our 03 silverado 1500hd, Hope this goes well, please rate thanks... Charles

First try rotating the tires to the rear. Does it go away? If you apply the brakes does it pull to the left? Could be a draging caliper or the slides may be hanging up.

I have a 1979 Chevrolet pickup 6 cyl 4 wheel drive Silverado, K ½ ton, that has the 5 lugs sheared off of the right front wheel. I am trying to replace them. How do I remove the front disc rotor to get at...


Remove caliper and nut to axle should come of with a little help of a rubber hammer. Knock bolts out from the front and drive new ones in from the back. You can use a lugnut with the flat side down to help pull them in and a hammer to help. Hope this helps.
