Re: Changeing Brake Pads on a Tahoe?

it pretty straight forward. you will need metric sockets, ratchet or air tools, i cant remember the size but its a decent sized allen wrench. and a hammer to beat the caliper off or on. 1 hour tops unless you have to turn rotors.

if you want a step by step answer just ask but, you should figure it out. its basically just the same as any other car. its the 3/4 ton and 1 ton trucks that take a little longer but still not hard.

You will also need a C-clamp or a table mounted clamp to push the pistons on the calipers in in order to get the new pads into place. I did a favor for a co-worker and replaced the brakes on his 1993 Toyota Camry. There was no pad at all left. He was grinding the actual piston on the rotor. He had the 3rd set of brakes and his car was at 127K miles. The lug nuts were so rusted on that i broke 3 of them trying to remove them. Well the kid doens't even know how to change his oil so I cant really blame him.

How does it feel to be beaten by a sewing machine?
