Jack the truck up and take the passangers tire off. look behind the rotor you should see 2 bolts holding the caliber on to the rotor. loosen those and take them out. from there you should be able pull up on the caliber this will take the caliber and pads off together. take the pads out of the caliber and install the new ones .

BECAREFUL not to twist or bend the caliber to much or you will bend the brake line.....

once you have installed the new brake pads in the caliber. put the caliber back on the rotor. if they will not fit release the bleader valve to release the pressure. than you should be able to slid the caliber back onto the rotor. once you have done that close the bleader valve. reinstall the 2 bolts to hold the caliber in place. put your tie back one. Follow these steps for the other side.

now once that is done. you might want to blead the front breaks.
what you do is have someone help you. fill the brake resiviour with brake fliud. than start your truck.
Have someone in the cab to press the brake. What you want to do is turn the wheel so you can get to the bleader valve. once you can get to it open it up. have the person in the cab other truck press the brake until you see a steady flow of brake fluid coming out of the caliber. once you see that have the pseron press the brake once more and hold it to the floor.
close the bleader valve.

now do the same thing on the other side. But, make sure you check your resivour fluid first.
This is to make sure you don't have any air in the lines. after you are done with both side put it in gear and hit the brake make sure you stop......... If that works go about half the block down and hit the brake again to make sure you stop......
once you have done that and are comfortable with the way the truck stops than ou are good to go and now know how to change the brakes for future refrence..... be awar the back brakes are diffrent.........

    hey thats not a problem the brakes should still be the same set up. the only diffrence that there might be is that instead of bolts you might have 2 pins holding the caliber on. but you should still be able to replace your brakes with the instuctions i gave you.

I have a 1997 CK3500 chevy silverado ,extended cab,4x4 1 ton dually...when I have my foot on the brake while I turn the truck off and take the key out of the ignition the truck continues to run until I...

The only thing I can think of is you have a short between the brake wire going to the brakes and the ignition wire that is designated for run. Melted wires touching each other. This would be the only explianation. Because these two wires are only close to each other in the harness. And ofcourse these two wires run under the dash and in the engine compartment. Time to start splitting the harness. I would probbly start under the dash, get the hard part out of the way. Good luck.
