Wasted a lot of gas running all over for parts.
Truck has had a bunch of issues in the last week. Money has been tight, so I let the brakes go a lot longer than I probably should have.
So, I end up getting the part numbers for the front rotors and pads the first time. Back again a second time to get the rear ones (or so I thought).
Then, the guy helping to do the brakes originally said it needed an o-ring for the caliper, since it was leaking. So I ran all over to try and find a replacement. Almost no one carries a rebuild kit. Found one, and got it to order in for tomorrow morn. Then come back to find out that the whole piston cracked apart, and I'd need the whole caliper anyway. On top of that, the second pair of rotors I got were too wide (got 30mm) and needed the 20mm ones.
I knew I was in for trouble when I tell the parts clerks what I need, and you can watch their eyes glaze over and they look like they are about to pass out. Just looking at the screens and all the 5000 choices, I get a bit sick myself.
It shouldn't be this difficult to fix some rear brakes on a popular truck....
