Default Brakes

Do you change all four brakes at a time? Or do you just do the front?

Thanks!

Usually the front is done... 30% of braking power is applied to the rear.. but eventually later you will have to change the rear pads as well.

I've asked Autozone and Pepboys for 06 Tc pads but they dont have them in stock or have a part number. Do you guys think I can use 05 pads?

would anybody consider putting pictures to the instructions just so we can bring the comp right out to car while performing the pad swap? .... i know what someone is going to say .... "how much clearer can it get" ... well - for someone (like myself) that has never bothered changing the pads and has always taken it to a shop .... seeing the pictures before I go out side and knowing 100% what everything looks like .... It would help. I think that some other guys/girls might feel the same way. I know I can follow directions and do exactly what it says (and eveybody says its easy to do) but it does help knowing what things look like even before hand.

ok well I was planning to change my brakes but when I took the old ones out they were fine.....plenty of brakes left but these are some of the pics I took which would be the process in changing them

front brakes
after taking the wheels off
step 1: locate the top bolt and use a 14mm socket and pry it loose
http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y42...0/100_1708.jpg
http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y42...0/100_1707.jpg

step 2: swing the caliper down and the brake pad will be exposed
http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y42...0/100_1709.jpg

step 3: note the way u take the brake pad out which will be the same way u put the new one on..also note the metal brackets as im sure u will use those again (im not sure since I didnt change mine)
http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y42...0/100_1710.jpg
http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y42...0/100_1711.jpg


thats as far as I got but when u do change them u will need a c-clamp to compress the piston so the caliper goes over the new brake pad then just bolt it up again using the 14mm socket

after all this is u will need to bleed ur brake as well as add ur brake fluid.

Im not sure if I covered everything as im in a rush to get out and to swimming...lol

but if I did forget anything let me know so I can edit this...

also this is to be used as a guide so i will not be responsible for any damaged caused...

gracias....
