See how I replace the entire front brake system – rotors/hubs, bearings, calipers, and pads on my 85 Ford F-150. It was an interesting experience and something I’ve never done before, so I learned a whole lot.
For instance, I learned that new hubs/rotors often come with bearing races pre-installed… and that getting them out is harder than the internet makes it seem. I also learned that trying to prevent a brake line connected via a banjo bolt from spilling the entire contents of your master cylinder is a lost cause unless you want to try to clamp your brake line… a risk I wasn’t willing to take.
In the end, I thought I had it all figured out, but then… I didn’t. Make sure to stick around to part 4 where I’ll talk about everything I learned and some of the ‘above and beyond’ steps I had to do in order to get my brake system back in working order.
