Super easy to slap pads on. Jack up the truck, block the wheels, support the axles and pull the wheels. Stick a big screwdriver between the pads and rotor and push the piston back into the caliper. Now remove the caliper, remove the old pads, install the new, re-install the caliper, bolt wheels back on, lower truck, PUMP the pedal a few times until you get brake pressure and your ready. Take it easy on the brakes for the first hundred miles and your ready to rock.

Seriously, your own garage is the most reliable brake shop you'll find.

Ask nofords08 for help. Just double-check his work

Avoid Just brakes! They make money lying to people and forcing them to buy $200 shocks.

Yeah I would never go to Just Brakes, their lifetime brake program sounds like a bunch of bs to me.

LOL you so funny...but there's several things that could be done. Like change pads, bleed sytem and refill, diagnostics, trouble shoot, turn rotors or replace them. I was asking to see if we could do something for him without sending him to a brake shop and spend mulla!

So back off my grill fool! I'll cut you LOL jk jk

No but we did a 5 lugger this weekend in my garage while we were putting on his lift and it looked really easy. I do need to check mine.

Probably don't need rears, just measure them. If you have at least 3/32" you could run out another set of fronts, before you'll need rears. If you do need them jack up the rear axle and pull both drums. Do one side at a time and use the other side as a visual reference for assembly. VERY IMPORTANT look at the brake shoes very closely and match up front/leading shoe and the rear/trailing shoe for each side prior to dis-assembly for either side.

Go slow, take your time and buy a brake spring retainer removal tool and a spring prying tool.

If you're near North Scottsdale, go to the Brake Masters on Hayden just south of Frank Lloyd Wright. Ask for Travis. He's a longtime friend of mine and runs the shop. You'll get honest work done every time, and he'll back it up. They do all types of other repairs there, too.
