In this video series, I demonstrate how to repair the front brakes on a Chevrolet C10 squarebody pickup truck.
This brake job is going to include new brake calipers, new inner and outer wheel bearings and bearing races, new brake pads, new rubber brake lines, pack the new wheel bearings with grease and add one new section of hard brake line and a new dust cap. I keep the rotors that I have but I do take them to a shop to have the rotors turned on a brake lathe.
In this video I demonstrate how to repair the front brake on my 2007 GMC Sierra 1500 pickup. This should be the same process for the Chevy Silverado, Tahoe, Suburban, Avalanche and Yukon. You will need to know what brake package your truck has because the parts can be different. The process for replacing the pads and rotors is roughly the same for these vehicles.
Many of the Chevrolet Silverado’s and the GMC Sierra’s have rear drum brakes. Some trucks with the heavy duty tow package, that usually includes the VortecMax 6.0L LQ9 engine and the 4L80E or 6L80E transmission, will have rear discs brakes.
However, all Suburbans, Tahoes, Yukons Escalades and Avalanches will have rear disc brakes.
