Replacing brake rotors & pads??

I ordered new rotors and ceramic pads for all 4 wheels.Can someone tell me what kinda job I'm looking at to change these out myself please.I did a quick search but found nothing.Is there a thread on the forum describing the procedure?If I have to take the job to a shop what would be the cost range for this?Thanks in advance.

Re: Replacing brake rotors & pads??

I did the same change two weeks ago, there is definitely pics and a thread on here somewhere. Someone sent it to me, I will look and try to find the same one it was very helpful. BTW. if at all mechanical, its not that difficult. Hardest part for me was getting the rear rotors past the ebrake pads on the inside. You can loosen the cable under the dash, but its all in the thread I will search for....

Re: Replacing brake rotors & pads??

Hey,thanks much.This is a great write up and pics.Just what I needed.I have never done this before.I mostly only work on my bikes.The brakes on my truck still work ok for now.At least when they're not hot.We just did 6300 miles pulling a trailer through the Rocky mountains.A couple times I wasn't careful enough and I guess the brakes became overheated and I got pulsations as if rotors were warped or something.When cooled down however they were ok again.This happened 4 times on the trip.I decided to install new gear just to be sure of what I have down there.Being able to stop my truck when it's loaded and pulling a trailer is sorta important.And the trailer has no brakes.

Hey man,keep your head up,you're an amazing person!
