Front Brake pad Replacement 2007 1500 Suburban 4x4

Hello out there, I need a little help ( Info ) on replacing front pads on 07 suburban. I HAVE DONE A FEW BRAKE JOBS IN MY LIFE, BUT NOT ON A LATE MODEL SUBURBAN. I would like to find a step by step illustrationon how to to this. I just need to know any of the unforeseen issues!!! I would guess that this is a pretty strait forword job. I'm trying to keep some of my cask on my Dinner table not the dealership's. Do ya know what I mean. ( Unless you happen to work for one of the dealerships... not trying to take food off your table eather) THANKS

If you have done any brake work before you can do this to. Its just a standard disc brake system, remove the caliper, compress the piston back, toss on some new pads and a new rotor and put it all back together. Usually on the newer vehicles they have squeakers, at least thats what a lot of guys call them, its the little anti chatter shims for the pads, if the pad kit comes with them then you have them, if not then don't worry about it. Other then that usually a little lube on the bolts that the calipers float on. Its a easy wrench job. I was hesitant getting into the brakes on my newer vehicles also, but after doing it once i don't have any worries about doing it again. Grab a wrench and a beer and dig in!

2003 Chevy suburban replaced front rotors and

you need to take the calipers off and make sure the caliper bolt are free of rust, dirt, and debris inside the boot and caliper bolt hole the caliper slides on these bolts so that both brake pads can wear equally. I suggest antiseize on a clean bolt. A small amount of grease will work, be careful this does not get on the pads or rotor.

1995 suburban the whole truck shakes when i apply the brakes and the pedal seems to pulse as it slows to a stop. I have changed the front pads calipers and rotors. no change ?

Now, did the mechanic even suggested anything about MACHiNiNG ur ROTOR brake disc before putting those brake pads? U got UNEVEN brake disc and needs MACHiNiNG to equally level the pads grip to the rotor! Do it i'm very sure of it! Taaah!

1997 suburban C1500. I replaced the Front pads

You will have to check each brake caliper for pressure when the brake pedal is applied. You may have a sticking piston in one of the brake calipers.

This will cause a spongy pedal.

Hope this helps,let me know how you get on.

Front wheel heating up, just replaced pads rotor, caliper,outer wheel bearing, and still gets hot.

You may need to replace the flexible brake line going to the caliper. One little spec of rust or dirt will restrict the brake fluid from returning to the master cylinder which will keep the caliper depressed

Start truck and press brake pedal several times to take up slack and you're done.

Unlike the front pads where you only have to push the caliper piston in to replace the pads,the rear caliper pistons have to be turned clockwise to screw them back in.Hint: only go as far as nessesary to get the pads to clear the rotor as this is also the adjustment for the emergency brake.Good luck,

My first brake job

I am assuming you have front disc and rear shoes? The front pads are just about as simple as it gets. Two 3/8 allen bolts to take off, one simple piston to push back in and replace pads. (this is assuming you are not metal to metal and the rotors do not need to be turned. The rear should be shoes and just follow the same procedure in reverse after taking them off. BTW remember the larger brake shoe goes towards the back of the vehicle.
