Part Details

  • Location: Front
  • Transmission/Drivetrain Type: 4WD

  • New

Hearing squeaking noises from the wheels? This may be the wear tabs on the brake shoes saying, "it is time for replacement." Aging brakes can also result in a pulsation from the brake pedal or long stopping distances. Brakes should be inspected every 10,000 miles or any time the tires are removed. They may need frequent replacement such as every 20,000 miles if used in stop and go traffic. Brakes can last longer if the vehicle is used primarily for long highway trips.

Kit specifications:

  • Includes 2 front rotors & a front brake pad set
  • Fits Driver & Passenger Side Front
  • Semi-Metallic brake pads
  • No core charge
  • Direct replacements

This front brake pad & rotor kit makes a great replacement and has an excellent value over the price of dealer brake pads & rotors.

  1. Step 1: Remove wheel.
    • While your car is still on the ground, use your 21mm socket to loosen your lug nuts.
    • Jack up and secure your car with jack stands.
    • Remove the lug nuts with your 21mm socket and ratchet.
    • Remove the wheel and set aside.
  2. Step 2: Remove the calipers
    • Remove the four 13mm bolts to remove the calipers.
    • Use a wire tie to fasten the caliper out of the way.
    • Use your screwdriver to pry out your brake pads.
    • Use your 15mm socket and ratchet to remove your caliper brackets to access the rotors.
    • Pull off the brake rotor.
  3. Step 3: Install new rotor and pads
    • Clean new rotor with brake cleaner.
    • Check your caliper pins to make sure they are in good working order.
    • Put your caliper bracket back on, and tighten the 15mm bolts to 60-65 ft lbs.
    • Insert your new pads into the brackets.
    • Dab the sides where they slide into the brackets with anti-seize lubricant.
    • Loosen the cap on the brake fluid.
    • Use your C-clamp or caliper tool to compress your caliper.
    • Place your caliper onto the bracket.
    • Tighten your 13mm bolts to 25 ft lbs
    • Tighten the cap on your brake fluid.
  4. Step 5: Put wheel back on
    • Make sure to use a star pattern when putting your wheel lugs back on.
    • Tighten to 100 ft lbs.
    • Replace hubcap.
  5. Step 6: Test and set brakes
    • Before driving the car again, start it up and pump the brakes a few times to get the pistons in the brakes in place.
    • Test the brakes in your driveway before taking the car onto the road.
    • Set your rotors by evenly braking from 30mph to 10mph, 50mph-30mph and finally 70mph to 40mph.
    • Obviously this is best done on a straight back road without any traffic.
