Replacing all rotors & pads on my 06 4x4 dually.....instructions needed

Hi all,

This coming weekend I'm hoping to get time to replace the brakes on my 06 4x4 dually. I'm going with Hawk Pads(LTS), Russell SS lines, replace the brake fluid with new, and install 4 Autozone rotors due to they are somewhat cheap & have a 2 year warranty.


Can someone provide me with some instructions on how to do this job AND any special tools needed?


Thanks all in advance,
Andy

It's all pretty straight forward

have you ever done a brake job, if not there are some pretty good videos on youtube.

you will need away to bleed the brakes either a second person to pump them or one of these works good too, MV8020 Brake Bleeding Kit.

I know they are not cheap but I would recommend buying the rotors from Ford... Just dont see any reason to put $50 rotors on a $50,000 truck. As far as instructions two bolts hold the caliper on the cage. Take those off, hang caliper,two big bolts hold cage to knuckle, remove those then rotors will come off. Have to compress caliper pistons with something, chanel locks can do this. Replace pads and back together you go. Hard to write instructions but I hope it helps

Thanks all for the help, and I did check out some of the you tube videos. I did see that there my be a special 1/2" axle socket I need to get for the rears?

I've done brake jobs in the past on my cars and trucks, just was looking for some insight on tips/tricks and any special tools needed.

Keep in mind my truck is an 2006 so I know the brakes are a little different from years past.


Thanks again!

Update:

I did the fronts this past week and found that my Hawk pads didn't include new anti-rattle clips. I figured for spending that kinda $$$ on them they would atleast include those. Had to make another trip to AutoZone to get a set.


I haven't done the rears yet but I'm assuming they are the same deal with the anti-rattle clips? Is that special 1/2" axle socket needed as well to remove the rear rotors?



Thanks all!!
