How do you replace front brake rotors on a 1999 3/4 ton Chevy pick-upXXXXX
HiCustomer Need to know if your truck is over or under 8600 GVW as they used 2 different set ups, depending on the weight. One regular and one like on the one ton trucks. Need to know if your rotors look like this picture. Thanks
Reply to Bob's Post: Nope,not like the picture. The truck is a K series and is under 8600 GVW. Thanks for your reply.
Hi again, Thanks for the added info. That narrows it down petty well. Just remember that these get a lot of rust and corrosion build up, so sometimes they can be a little stubborn. If you need help with the pads or anything else, just let me know. I will be in and out all day but will keep checking in. Thanks
Notice: Any new rotor must have the protective coating removed from the friction surfaces before being placed in service. Remove the protective coating using denatured alcohol or an equivalent brake cleaner, and wipe the surface clean with clean cloths. Do not use gasoline, kerosene, or other oil base solvents which may leave an oily residue. This residue is damaging to the brake lining and is flammable.
Important: If the rotor was removed using the jack screw method you must ensure that the hub flange is free of nicks or marks caused by this procedure. Remove all raised nicks or marks before installing the rotor.
