Re: Relpacing calipers

Here's a good one for you. I thought I had a pulsation in my brake system on my Grand Am. It ended up being a bad shock allowing one of the rear tires to bounce during braking. This is most likely not your issue, just wanted to throw it out.

Replacing caliper and cylinders is pretty straight forward as everyone else has stated. Take your time and bleed the brakes. Make sure on the rear, you get everything back the way it was. And definitely get your drums and rotors checked for out-of-roundness.

One thing most brake shops won't tell you is you don't have to get the drums/rotors turned every time you do a brake job. It may be time to replace them if someone else has been doing your brakes. They're not overly expensive.

Good luck
