Brakes are pretty big on these trucks.

I know it’s a 3/4 ton truck and everything is more hd but until your taking it apart I forgot just how big stuff is. Lol.
My fronts were looking a little thin and we had some nice days so I wanted to get it done while had nice weather. Trucks to big to fit inside.
Chasing another problem with pedal going soft as well.
I bled them after and the fluid was pretty dirty but no air. I think the booster is losing vacuum.
Lol my lil impact couldn’t break my lugs loose. Time for an upgrade.

Yeah no kidding. I did my front rotors/pads over summer and had to pull out some major breaker bars to break those caliper bolts free (even after PB blast soaking for days prior). Then had to bang the crap out of those rotors with a hammer to break free from the hub. Longest brake job I've ever done.

Maybe being all original brakes at 11 years old and 90k miles on them had something to do with it practically welded in place. Pads were down to bare metal...they were bad. Now I just got the kit to do the rears. Hoping it's not as horrible as the fronts.

I went with power stop Z36 all around FYI.

The bigger the breaker bar you can afford the better to help with the lug nuts. LOL I love @Discount Tire those guys are awesome...till I see the tech trying to TQ the lugs on my truck. I think the TQ is higher than his body weight.....LOL

Hey at least they are torquing the lugs instead of using an impact like most shops use! I always do my own rotations and maintenance...just hate the thought of a shop touching my truck.

I learned real quick that I needed new tools with the HD truck. Needed a set of bigger 19+mm impact sockets, gigantic breaker bar with cheater pipe, a heavier floor jack with more lift height. Harbor Freight worked perfect for all that stuff on the cheap.

I do agree with you @onecrazyfoo4u . I was hesitant with trying @Discount Tire but they have left a VERY good impression on me for their staff and workmanship. They do make ever effort to do it right, the same way you want it done. That visit was just funny due to the size of the tech working on my truck. When you got to TQ 145+ftlb 32 times you got to be ready for it. LOL

Had the tires on one of my cars replaced at a local tire shop once. I rotated the tires at the next oil change and ended up twisting off 2 of the 5 lugs on both of the front tires (so a total of 4 lugs). That ruined me so when I need new tires I will raise the car on jackstands and use another vehicle to take the wheels to the tire shop then reinstall and torque them myself.

That was always my fear...them over torquing or breaking lugs which suck to replace. I do the exact same thing as you, just bring in the wheels/tires for replacement! I'm anal like that though...

Ever since highschool where I paid for a shop to do an oil change on my car once and they didn't use a freaking o-ring with the oil filter. Needless to say, I was puking oil all over the roadway and didn't realize until the oil light came on. Thank goodness I pulled over in time...the freaking engine was dry! But I filled it back up, put a new filter on, and drove it for many years after that without an issue. Thank goodness for Honda dependability . And ever since then, shops do not touch my vehicles unless absolutely necessary (warranty TSB's or such).
