I've checked all the sites you suggested with no luck. Autolibrary.com looks like a very interesting site they had no info on my year of truck. I'm just looking for a quick overview of this procedure and what kind of problems i might encounter. Thanks

I suggest you get an OEM service manual or at minimum a Chilton or Haynes. Be forewarned that the two latter ones are very generic.

I thought that was the purpose of this board, to save a buck and do it yourself. For the price of a service manual i could pay someone for the brake job.

That is the purpose of this board, although you don't deserve a reply I will give you one anyway. Here we try to help you, but you've got to help yourself. You have heard the one about give a man a fish and you feed him for today. TEACH a man to fish and he can feed himeself for a lifetime. Get a manual, not only will you use it now you'll use it over and over.

If you want short instructions they are the same for any vehicle...basically off with the old, on with the new. Use one side as a guide to do the other. That's the best advice anyone can give you.

We can't possibly cover all the things you could encounter here. That's why you need a book to guide you as well. Easywind gave a better analogy that I could drum up, so Kudos.

I own a manual for EVERY car I own, from my work car on up to my classic Trans Ams. They've paid for themselves already 3 times over.

If you think of the cost of a manual in the terms you're thinking of, you need some reality checks . An OEM manual set will run you 120 bucks, I'll bet a proper brake job will run you a lot more .

I'll also assume you didn't try the library for a free copy? Again, barring that, time to up the ante and buy the book. It's worth its weight in gold.
