Re: Rear Brake Pad Job for WK Jeeps

matt, the front are a little different in that the caliper is 2 pieces. so you have to remove it from the vehicle, then 2 extra bolts to take it apart.

but just as easy.......

Re: Rear Brake Pad Job for WK Jeeps

You can see the wear lines on those rotors; always resurface the rotors when putting in new pads, or if worn, get new ones. The pads cost a lot more than the brake lathe machining cost, and pads will not break in properly on a worn, scratched rotor. No ASE shop would ever replace the pads without doing this either.

Re: Rear Brake Pad Job for WK Jeeps

Good post but may I recomend that you replace or rebuild those calipers. The dealership pad slapped my rears before i baught it and by not replaceing the calipers caused them to stick and wear out prematurley. I have spoken to several shops and they all have said that the rear jeep calipers have the same problem with sticking so almost all of them replace the calipers when they doa break job. Also the rear rotors are only good for about one use before they should be replaced. I am willing to bet that if you had them miked they would be under tollerance.

Just my 02

bump:

if your rotor surface doesn't seem scratched, you nail doesn't catch any lines. but the end of the rotor has a small lip should you replace the rotors?

are 05-10 rear pads all the same size?

Are you saying you should replace the calipers every time you replace the pads? I never heard of that before, and I don't think the OEM would do such a crappy design job... I must have misunderstood.

Personally, on my other cars (Lincoln, Oldsmobile, Mustang, Mazda) I never get the rotors resurfaced (saves me the $50 each rotor that the shops want to charge), and have not noticed any premature brake pad wear, and I do a little track time with some of my cars.
