This post is to document and hopefully help someone looking to do any of the following: Change out brakes pads Remove rotors Swap out calipers Swap out the entire FRONT wheel bearing assemblies Replace the FRONT ABS sensor The work done below was on a 1999 Chevy Suburban K2500 (3/4 ton) with 4WD. I don't know to which other application this applies. Hopefully, though, this will give someone a heads up on what to kind of expect. I am not a mechanic! I am not an expert. Therefore please take the following as for reference only. I will am not in a position to tell you if this will be the same for your application. For some reason it seems the '99 Suburban K2500 is always the odd-man-out when it comes to doing anything mechanically. I'm not sure on the particulars but, again, hopefully this will be helpful to someone as to what to expect when working on their front end suspension. If you have insight to anything here, please please feel free to add information so that I may put it in the post and/or add the information. Anything pertaining to what other trucks/applications this applies to, etc. I apologize, again, as I'm unsure of the sizes of sockets and tools. This was done some time ago and I no longer have the sheet I was writing on to make notes for this Write up! This is the complete start to finish of replacing the wheel assemblies, replacing the calipers, replacing the rotors, and replacing the pads. Pick and choose the steps as you see fit to what you want to do. I'll just run through the whole gamut. Step 1: Jack your truck's front end off the ground and place JACK STANDS UNDERNEATH, IN THE APPROPRIATE PLACE TO SECURE YOUR TRUCK. Please do not do any kind of work to a vehicle without it being securely raised on jack stands. With the front wheel off, locate the two allen head bolts holding your caliper in place. Might take a little pressure to unfasten, so watch your knuckles. Without kinking the brake hose, flip the caliper up and rest it on top of the wheel assembly. If you are keeping the caliper, hang it with a wire hanger to keep it out of the way. If you are simply replacing pads, keep on reading. You should resurface the rotors anyway...and need to get them off. On the rear side of the caliper, unbolt the brakeline with a socket. Oil WILL spill -duh- so if you don't want to dirty your floor may want to put something down for the entire job. Once you've unbolted the brakeline, pull it away slowly. IF YOU WILL NOT BE REPLACING THE CALIPER (not sure why you'd even be taking it off, if you aren't) THERE ARE FLAT WASHERS THERE THAT YOU WILL NEED! NEW CALIPERS WILL COME WITH NEW ONES. THESE NEED TO BE REPLACED SO PAY ATTENTION TO THE FACT THEY ARE THERE! Toss the caliper and pads. This is where the fun begins. I highly recommend you have a long breaker bar! The wheel bearing nut needs to come off (the huge one right smack in the middle of the hub) I went ahead and propped a block of wood against the hub, under a wheel stud, to prevent the wheel from turning while I took the nut off. With a little weight the nut should come off. Keep the nut and washer(s?) and lay aside. Unclip the ABS sensor wire at the frame and free it from any guides it may be pressed into. Turning your attention to the back side of the wheel assembly, there are 4 bolts that need to be taken off in order for the wheel assembly to come off. Again, you'll need to apply a little force to get them off, watch for busted knuckles - especially with brake-oil slick wet hands! The four bolts are on the four corners of the back side. This is what you'll end up with once removed: It may take a little shuffling but the entire wheel assembly should be able to just be pulled off at this point. The only 'bind' it should have is the shaft binding to the middle of the assembly. I had one just pull right off, the other side I popped with a hammer until the shaft broke loose. Just a few taps to loosen it is all it took. Ok, remember when I said the fun was beginning? Ok...this is where the REAL fun begins. Drop the entire assembly "right side up" so the bolts (aka studs) are sticking out the top. I sat mine on top of a few 2x4's. THE ROTORS AND WHEEL BEARING ASSEMBLIES NEED TO BE SEPERATED! If you are lucky enough to have a press, lucky you! The bolts need to be pressed out. For those of us that aren't so lucky, well, pick up the hammer again. With a few blows (don't bang away like you're putting in railroad spikes), the bolts should just pop out the bottom, and drop to the ground. If you have a stubborn one, grab an extra piece of 2x4 and POP it a little harder. There's always the option of putting a lugnut back on and using it to hammer without damaging the bolt/stud, but really there's no use. You aren't banging threads. If you are....well, you're doing it wrong. If you happen to damage a stud/bolt, you can always purchase replacements - I think they're $5-$10 each, or so. With the assembly turned over, you will have to turn the wheel bearing assembly a little to slip out of grooves cut in the rotors. Lift and work the rotors out. You should then have rotor in hand, wheel bearing assembly on the workbench/ground. Old wheel bearing assembly, new wheel bearing assembly, and rotor. You can see the groves cut into the rotor to allow the bearing assemblies to come out: Once you have gotten your rotors turned, it's time to put things back together!
