Remove wheel, install pads:
This was a very easy and tool light job. No fears or concerns, and an install time of maybe 15 mins each. Note how they look and are Assembled currently!
First, remove wheel. Acquire all tools noted above and inspect rotors. All good? Next locate the brake pad pin retention clips:
Then, use small pick to remove said pins from both top and bottom. Use small pick or the like to push brake pad pins out towards the inside of the truck, whilst pushing down on the damper plate:
Clean pins free of debris, set aside. Use small pry bar (as shown below) to push the old pad (thus pushing brake piston) apart making room for the new pad, do this for the left and right:
The pads slide right out of the top, just wiggle them a little (note how and what pad goes where, wear tabs):
FOR EBC YELLOW STUFFS (maybe others as well I don't know):
Open box remove pads find 4 pads, two have no wear tabs two do. The wear tabbed pads go on the outsides (away from truck) with the silver tab towards the back and on bottom. Install flex plate included and use a very very light dabbing of the supplied antiseize brake slide stuff:
Note direction of pad vs tab and install respectively. It may be required to slide both pins in through the first pad, install top plate, push down on top plate and work pins in on top of spring loop, then through to other pad, push down on top plate and up on the outside pad whilst sliding pin through. Then finish with retention clips.
Once trucks on the ground and both side have been done PLEASE ENSURE TO PUMP BRAKES WITH TRUCK RUNNING BEFORE MOVING!!!
Do not massively brake on new pads, they must bed in, drive around with a greater following distance for the first 50+ or so miles at least.
I have 32" tires and noticed that the brakes were lacking. Changed to the EBC yellow stuffs and noticed an amazing difference! Great bite and brake force!
