Just did front brakes on my 89 C60
Well I just finished the front brakes.
Last time i had my bus out the brakes went soft about 1/2 to my destination. Once I got there I notice that I was out of brake pad. I had no choice but to drive it home 80 miles at a slow speed.
I pulled the wheels off and found the caliper pistons deteriorating so I replace the calipers also.
You would think that working at a chevy dealer I would be able to get the right calipers. I took about 3 tries to get the right ones, I actually went through NAPA. Calipers cost me $80 each and pads were $70 for AC Delco.
All in all the job went quite smooth, My only complaint was the stupid wheel design, I spent at least 15 min on each wheel getting it centered and true.
Total time invested just about 1.5 hrs.
Anybody have tricks for centering the 5 spoke i beleive dayton style wheels?
