Gimme a brake

Minding my own business a few days ago, slowing down for traffic/light, and there's this god-awful grinding coming from the passenger side front.

Bye bye brakes

So, shameless plug here, but ordered two new rotors and a front pad set from RA on wednesday eve and I'll be damned it got here yesterday! All Motorcraft, parts/shipping for less than $150. Thought about going the performance route, but tbh I can outperform the dude next to me in rush hr traffic just fine as it is, so I just stuck with OEM.

Here's the before shots....








I feel damn lucky, looking at just how bad these brakes were and fortunately did not catastrophically fail and hurt anyone.

So PSA from me, dont be me....

-Doof

DOH!

Nope, didn't think there was one so I thought nothing of it. That woulda taken care of the brake cleaner/fluid I bought earlier today lol

Next time....

I was quite pleased at just how easy this was. I've always had this "oh ****" mentality with doing my own brakes so I never have. Think that has changed now.

RockAuto Discount Code


Code goes in the "how did you hear about us" block during checkout.

Remember the piston "spinner inner" tool for the rears. Or just be like me and use a lot of 4 letter words and needle nose...

Vice grips to turn it and a huge C clamp to press. That's how I did it.


Bullitts are better than Bullets
