Chev seirra: I have a 95 or 6 1500 chev. no brakes, no leaks

This answer was rated:

I have a 95 or 6 1500 chev. no brakes, no leaks found underneath, and fluid level stays up, I believe that was in the first years of abs, is there a common problem? it hasn't been driven to any extent for years, how to tell if master cylinder or electronic? or both!

tims auto repair :

hi...do you still need help?


 

Customer:

Okay for now, other stuff to do, may change over from drums to disc on back when time allows should be straight forward I think, any obvious problems you can see? I think its closer to "93" 94, not my truck just trying to get it going for a friend. will take disc brakes off 2000 GM Seirra, put on 93-94? silverado, Can you tell from that if there will be anything that won't fit? seals? etc, Don't remember much more than the four bolts and brake line connection to undo.

Customer:

Correction, 2002 GM

tims auto repair :

are you going to replace the complete rear?


 

tims auto repair :

or,,the brkes only


 

tims auto repair :

i dont think the 02 brake system will work on the 90's model


 

tims auto repair :

though,you could replace the complete rear


 

Customer:

Was thinking brakes only, with all the messing around with complete rear maybe just check the drums, pads first see if they will last the winter or not? Can drum brake pads even be gotten now if needed? don't know what shape the drums are in either, its been sitting quite a while. If change complete rear. drive shaft, connection, lenght universal is okay? both 1500s

tims auto repair :

No problem, I realize you have to basically guess at so things with bad info, and as I said I'm not even sure of the year of the truck.
