Replacing the Front Brake Pads by expat
I'm a backyard mechanic so there is no expressed professionalism in my write up. Its only a guide and it is found in each box of OEM pads (albeit tiny tiny writing!).
Brakes are probably the most critical part of your truck. Take time and care and if unsure, either consult a manual or get someone professional to do it. Notwithstanding that, its an easy job.
On a spanner rating 1 - "Anyone older than 12yrs" to a 10 - "Professionals only" I'd say its a 3 spanner job.
I bought the following items
