warphace: Your videos are appreciated greatly.
1A Auto Parts: The clips help hold the brake pads securely to the caliper. All of them should be used, if not it could create a dangerous situation.1aauto.com 888-844-3393
irish89055: Well, finally got started on my 99 Silverado 1500... and I had to go out and get a Star drive socket, it doesn't use a 18mm bolt.. The rotor doesn't have those holes for a 10m bolt.. guess a hammer will work..
steppenwolf95: i'm changing my pads tomorrow on my '03 Tahoe. As far I see it's really similar. Only difference on mine : the scew for the calliper are T55 torx.
1A Auto Parts: It should be the same if not very similar. We carry some great brake rotor and pad kits for your 2003 GMC 1500 on our website 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
Darian Reeves: I am having the same issues. I have a 2003 GMC 1500 and I cannot find a good video to help me out for changing brakes and rotors. I am assuming that it is the same.
1A Auto Parts: This video will show you the basics. You should be able to apply it to your truck. youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=2FbX9AU3Jz0
irish89055: am I the only one having trouble finding a good video on replacing the brakes and rotors on the 99+ Chevy Silverado 1500 ?... I love these 1aauto vids but haven't found the one I need though I assume the 2500 is similiar
1A Auto Parts: @desperado3410 You may want to check the calipers to see if they are working correctly. You could also try bleeding the brakes if the pedal doesn't seem to feel right to you.
1A Auto Parts: @RUSSELGAINZ No problem at all. Have a great day!
RUSSELGAINZ: @1aauto Thanks so much for the help. Found out when my dad did my brakes he didn't tourqe down the caliper bolts that hold it to the rotor. One was completey missing and that what was causing the chattering. When brakes were being pushed it couldn't grip the rotor properly and was vibrating back and forth cause it was loose with the missing bolt. Thanks so much again and ur vids or A+.
1A Auto Parts: @bg147 It sounds as though the inner pad might not have been seating properly against the rotor when the brakes were applied. You may want to check the caliper to see if it's working correctly and inspect the brake pads to see if they have worn correctly. Hope this helps you out.
bg147: I am in the process of replacing the front pads, turning the rotors, and repacking the bearings on my 1996 Chevy C1500. On the inside surface of the driver's side rotor, there is a circular ridge of rust and pitting but not along the outer edges of the rotor as I would have expected. It is about halfway between the outer and inner edges, running all the way around. Is there a likely reason for this? The other side was fine along with both sides of the other rotor.
1A Auto Parts: @josephfoster30 The process should be fairly similar if it isn't the same.
