check to see that the sensor wires that sense axle rotation are connected. Some are near the caliphers abd read the rotor rotation and in my car with rear drum brakes it is in the axle housing next to the axle bearing. Check that the sensor is compatable for the new application
get a standard metric wrench set at Sears
combination wrenches and sockets as well
you will need most of them for this vehicle for brakes and other things later like the belt, and other maintenance items. they will pay for themselves the first time you use them on your brakes
I beleive the rear calipers are the ratchet style, you have to use a tool to turn the piston so it retracts back into the caliper, if you didnt do this or didnt ratchet them in all the way, then they will be too far out and will cause what you are describing, basically applying pressure to the rotors all of the time. It is also possible that the calipers need replaced if you did indeed ratcheted the caliper piston in all the way originally.
There is a reason that Chevy only made this vehicle for a few years,,, I couldnt get them to fix anything like that. When you replace the parts,, use a full can of brake cleaner on the pins and slides so that they move freely. After that, use a proper brake lube to lube the pins before you put it all back together.
on disc brakes there is a metal marker on them that when the pads get low on material it will make a squeeling noise to let you know its time to change the pads.. so I would say you are in need of front pads also even though they look good you are getting low.. this marker is designed to let you know its time before you get to metal to metal .. jerry
