Re: Removing Calipers and Cleaning Rotors

I did my rotors calipers this summer. Like other said, there is just some bolts to remove. Its easy.

I sandblasted everything (rotors and calipers), did two primer coating and then two paint coating. I did not used high temperature paint.... 3 months so far and the paint is just like when I sprayed it. I don't know how it will handle the winter... they put lots of salt here !



if you have any question, just ask !

Re: Removing Calipers and Cleaning Rotors

When you remove the 2 bolts off of the caliper, do you have to compress the pads to pull it off because I removed the two bolts and it did not come off.

Re: Removing Calipers and Cleaning Rotors

For the front calipers, there are 4 bolts (two bolts for the "pad holder" and two other bolts "pad holder holder !?"). You have to remove the last ones (pad holder holder), the bigger ones, and the whole assembly will come out. The pads are tight but you should have no problems for removing them. They are much harder to replace them on the rotor because they are very tight but I did my fronts and my rear at least two times each with no problems (only using my hands).

Re: Removing Calipers and Cleaning Rotors

So on the rear, once the two bolts are off, you just pull the caliper off? I thought you had to compress the pads? How hard is is it to get back on?

getting them back on isnt hard if you arent replacing the pads. The only time you need to compress the pads is when you put in new rotors/pads to squeeze the piston back out.

if you want good brakes on a cheaper price check out my install here http://jeepgarage.org/showthread.php...ghlight=rotors the whole set pads/rotors was under $300
