    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.

    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...

    I know I don't post often, but I'm just about finished installing the TSM kit in my Suburban and I figured I'd post a how-to since the Drum-Over-Hub version doesn't seem to have any references online...

    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.

    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.
