Sorry for the typing errors,(I must learn one day) I meant wobble and Pikey was right I forgot a washer on the rotor and it's all good. Pikey's pic's and step by step made all the diff and the job possible. Thanks

Ok, I am doing my brakes right now and found some issues and inconsistencies with my how to, So here is the revised version
Thanks for the clarification I have 4 wheel disks on the truck but figured like most cars they would have a different configuration. Looks simple compared to my Mini just way way bigger Thank you for the tips here greatly appreciated. Will start with the fronts (I can feel the warp when brakes are applied) so I am hoping that solves my issues. if not its off the rear of the car
PS I have a 2001 suburban LS (1500) assuming the brake will be similar identical
Found this on you tube looks a little too easy

Nope, it is that easy. I did not see anything about cleaning and lubing the pins

one more questions if you do not mind
1) did you use loctite (red) on reinstalling the caliper mounting bolts?
(read this on the auto zone site and found this for other references)

The torques heads are a T55 size. I would never put red loctite on anything that I wanted to get apart again. If you insist on using it only use the blue. Red requires heat to get apart.
