    are these really worth 200 buks for a set there a bit pricey. for the most part this is a work truck thats not beat very often. i guess what i might be saying is im looking for the most bang for the buck, if you think this is it thank a bunch if not where do i find em.

    thank for all the help

    Keep in mind you will want to regrease the front end parts.
    Replace all the brake fluid as well.

    Replace any cheap bearing you can..

    Then clean and adjust the rear brakes and e-brake ...

    Maybe napa has cheaper rotros...

    do you mean the wheel bearing? i am familiar with the rear breaks but it looks like the adjustment for the e break is under the box on the driver side is that it. it looks kinda self explanatory, to take apart and tighten

    thanks again

    that's the e-brake (emergency brake). you need to adjust the brakes inside the drums.

    better yet have the drums surfaced and install new pads. keep the rears in line with the newfound stopping power of the fronts.
