After listening to some rear brake scraping on my way to pick up rest of parts from PO in Maryland,I decided to tackle them yesterday. I online ordered them from Advance on my way back Friday,picked them up yesterday.The PO had a set of rear Brembo rotors,so I didn't use the ones I ordered(only got the rebate with Gold pads,not the platinum ones). The right rear caliper was dragging,so I ordered that. Getting down to work, both sides were shot, they all were worn on angle from top of pad to bottom, right side worse-almost nothing left on bottom of inner pad.When I removed pads on driver side,I noticed the piston boot was torn and piston didn't look too good,so luckily my local Advance had one that I online ordered and picked up before they closed(I like Advance as I used a 25% discount code that you can find). Everything back together,will check for leaks this morning. I re-hooked up the trailer wiring power,I had to cut a spot out of the wire underneath car that PO had routed-there was some insulation missing and green corrosion. I plan on buying a trailer at Tractor Supply,hope the harness works.... have a few more new goodies to put on...
