    You were good until you forgot to mention about compressing the piston back in on each caliper. Other than that, gtg

        Gene is good people, always a pleasure to brush elbows with him.
        Was it easier than you thought it would be?
        A sunny day
        A shotgun and a Chevrolet
        Wouldn't you like that?

            Damn, I just paid $750 for pads all around, new front rotors, Motorcraft parts. F-150 4X4 supercab. At least I got 103,000 miles on the originals.

            Could have bought a nice gun for $750.

                depending on year of truck that seems a little high earlier trucks with non floating rotors with hubs are expensive

                    God forbid they use a little antiseize on the production line. A pet peeve of mine....nothing gets reassembled without the stuff. Take note of this story all of you 4x4 beach going truckers, especially if you have alloy rims.

                      I do not miss working on those earlier trucks(especially the 4x4's) at all. Slip-offs are the next best thing since sliced bread
