The bleeder+banjo bolts worked perfect for bleeding them out.
In retrospect, I'm pretty sure they would have bled just as well by cracking the banjo bolts. I bled the banjo bleeder after every...

Haha.. well, based on the responses, I'm not sure that people care much, but I figured I'd report back.
Brakes are awesome! The pads have come in and some more bubbles have worked their way out...

So I've now had the chance to bleed them and burnish the pads and now that the pads have come in I'm feeling pretty good about this change. I still think there's a little air in the lines that I...

Here is a picture of me using the chisel to know the end caps off. I found out on the 2nd one, that using large channel locks and turning was much more efficient.
After the outer sleeve...

Next up, is to remove the ball joint. On my truck, 1 of the 4 locations used a bolt and nut that was presumably part of the brake line fixturing. Remove that with a couple of wrenches.

Last week, I had to replace the upper control arm bushings and ball joints in my 1999 K2500 Suburban. I figured I'd document it for those who may have to do it in the future...
So, let's start......
Hudson, MA. I forgot to update my profile... sorry about that.
Figured I'd introduce myself. I'm up in the northeast and own a 1999 K2500 Burb with the 7.4L in SLT trim. I've been a member for a while.. lurked on and off. I got the truck back on '01 to...
