How to change one quickly Camo method
Pull locking hub cap and remove snap ring.
Unbolt seal/felts on back of knuckle.
Unbolt brake caliper and tie out of the way. (can be skipped if you have long brake lines)
Unbolt steering arm. (leave bottom knuckle cap alone)
Pull entire outer knuckle assembly off of axle.
Swap in your parts.
Put it back together.
It's a big-time shortcut since you don't need to mess with the 54mm socket or wheel bearings.
Some folks like to swap out their solid rotors for vented rotors. This is a simple and somewhat inexpensive modification. I did this swap because my brakes were getting very hot and making some very annoying noises. If you can change your brakes you should not have any problem with this swap.

Why my front brakes are overheating after I replaced/serviced the rear brakes pads ?


Coincidence. Check brake fluid and master cylinder. Check front calipers for failure, possible deployment and pressing the pads against rotors.

Probably there is a leak in the hydraulic brake line hoses connecting the master and the wheel cylinder hose. Also get the brakes bleeded to remove any air the system. also get the check valve of the brake booster checked and the vacuum hose.

How do you install a DISC BRAKE HARDWARE KIT in 1980 toyota pickup ''front disc brake''


remove all connection bolts , clips. I then slowly pry the brakes as far from the rotor as posible ( depressing the brake cylinder) with tire tool or large screw driver, so the new thicker pads will go in with ease. Replace new pads acording to toyota and replace bolts/ clips. this method requires no bleeding of brakes.

Brakes bad even after replacing pads/rotors


You need to replace the master cylinder. If all else is good and the petal goes to the floor, that's really about all it could be.
