Brakes

Any tips on changing the brakes? I done it twice before but just want to see if anyone have some more useful tips.

BTW... How often do you change brakes anyway?

Thank You

My tip

My tip is get a Manuel and do one side at a time so you can see how it goes back together.Also use jack stands never the jack by itself.

A book and one side at a time is good advice.

You might also consider digital photos to use as a reference since some books, even though model specific, have subtle differences from year to year.

And DON'T FORGET to clean and lube the caliper slides/pins if equipped!
