Nothing hard about it , just make sure to lube the sliders with a quality product such as eze slide by kleen flo.. I also use disk brake quiet on the backs of the pads when installing.

Replace left and right brake pads at the same time. Do not replace brake pads for one side of the vehicle only.
  1. Raise and support front of vehicle.
  2. Remove tire and wheel assemblies.
  3. Remove pad pins and springs.
  4. Remove brake pads, then shims.
  5. Reverse procedure to install. When installing new brake pads, push caliper piston inward using piston compressor No. 490221600C or equivalent.

2000 Silvrado z71 4wd Brake Pad Replacement


crawl underneath the front and look at the caliper if it has a duel piston caliper you will see 2 circles about 3 inches across and if it is a single piston caliper it will only have one of these circles in the middle this iswhere the pistons are. yes those pads are suitable. As for bleeding the brakes you need to start at the passengers side rear wheel and bleed it first then go to the drivers side rear wheel then go to the passengers side front wheel and then finally the drivers side front wheel. If you are only replacing the brake pads and shoes then you don't need to bleed the brakes. If you are bleeding the brakes then you will want to be sure to top up the brake fluid as you are doing thebleeding process as if you don't you will end up having to start all over again. as for special tools you may need a 3/8 hex bit and a 8 inch " C " clamp to compress the calipers after you remove the brake pads. If you are replacing the rotors you may require a special socket fo dis-assebleing and re-assembly of the front hubs.

On one of the front driver side pads there is a sensor for low pads. He either did not hook it back up or got a lose connection to it.
