$360 PB & pad refresh :eek:
- front left lower caliper slide frozen, $77 for rebuilt caliper
- new front and rear pads $90
- both parking brake adaptor kits changed $190
First rear disc removal was noisy and quite a fight, dead blows with hammer against the face, hammering it 'on' freed up disc fast then walk around rim with jack's lug wrench and screwdrivers finally broke off drum rust rim and allowed disc to slip off even w/ frozen adjuster.
Second disc removal took penetrating oil at hub and ALOT of hammer dead blows, then prying with jack lug wrench to get it to move at all (adjusters were frozen) .... keeping disc centered and not allowing it to 'tilt' made it eventually slip off, in about 1/2 the time of the first one.
The springs had completely lost their temper - don't get into a high mileage rear parking brake w/o replacement springs.
Bled cylnders 3 times after reseating them on new pads, used 12 inches of aquarium hose and only bled enough to fill hose and not spill any, got a few pin-point sized air bubbles that sure firmed the brake pedal feel up better then ever!
I dread paying for new rotors but will have too before too long...
