Day of problems

well today, its poring rain and i had to bring my truck to get new brakes becuase ive been riding metal to metal on the drivers side rear. so i get to the shop and the guy says come back in an hour because our big lift is taken, so i pull out and i hear a loud knock coming from the brake and i pull away, i try to stop at the red light, and the pedal goes all the way down to the floor and the truck barely slows down, needless to say, i almost got killed, so i decide to drive down to the boat which is about 3 miles away. i drive really slow, and just manage to make it there. hangout there for a while,. drive back to shop. get it up on the lift, and they were nice enough to let me hangout in the shop, like i do everytime lol i like to know whats going on, and learn, ( i watched them drop the tranny last week) so they take the wheels off and say oh my god, lol the caliper is competely shot, and the rotor is chipped away and about a 1/2 inch thick, they had orderd rotors and calipers for me in advance, and they take the new ones out of the box and they say its got 7 lugs!!! they orderd ones for a 97!!! holy shiat im so pissed now, i left my truck overnite AGAIN!!!! i cant take all these problems lol they are half my fault,, i needed to vent a little ............................ i gotta geta pick of of the old caliper and rotor.. thanks you and have a nice day

Be glad you don't have a dually. Rotors/calipers/pads for that is some money... like sell a car to pay for it lol. I think something like $560 or so for ROTORS ONLY.
