Big Trouble Brakes

I went to go replace my rear pads and rotors because one was grinding. First of all, those clip things on the pads are a pain in the ***. Then I noticed one of the boots was missing from one the caliper rod things. So I assume this has been sticking. I also assume the only way to fix this is to get a new caliper and a new caliper for the other side as well, so the two calipers will have the same stopping power?

This is really expensive to get two new calipers and its just something I can't afford right now. Anything else I can do? Please let me know thanks guys I appreciate the help!

Hahah thanks man

Anyone know if it's possible to lube up the bolt and put a new boot on it? Would it wear uneven still because one bolt is better than the other? Sorry for the painful questions

You can buy a new set of slide pins with boots. It's a brake hardware kit.

Any parts store should have the brake hardware.

I got the kit for about $15 last summer... I believe at O'Reillys. But, all parts stores carry it. Just be sure the kit included the items you need.

Be sure to get the brake grease, too.

If your slide pin is rusty, you can sand it smooth with 400 grit sandpaper. That's what I did. You still need the brake grease.

So I got the brake hardware kit (for the boots and the clips) and I also got new guide pins. It was a nightmare trying to get my old guide pins off but I eventually got it done with a blow torch and everything seems to be fine! Like $15 for the hardware kit and new guide pines. So glad I didn't have to get a new caliper and everything. Thanks guys!

Talking On the Road Again....

Glad you were able to get the parts without paying a fortune for the parts.
