Re: Relpacing calipers

front caliper is just as easy as replacing the pads themselves. you just have to discoinnect the brake line and then connect it to new caliper. when you have everything back together you'll have to bleed the system. as for rears, replacing the wheel cylinder involves taking out 2 mounting bolts, and the brake line of course. the hard part is dealing with all of the springs and cliops on the drums. not a hard thing todo just takes a bit of time and some grunting.
the hardest part of all this is that the bleeders and brake lines oftensieze up. you'd be well served tospray some penetrating oil on them prior to working on it. PB blaster is my penetrator of choice, but everyone has their own preference
