Replacing front brakes on my 04 svtf
 
I need some help

You need help, like you have never done brakes before help? Might want to check out YouTube tutorials. Not hard if you have tools.

I have done brakes they say not to remove the spring what r they talking about

look at the caliper, there is a sort of leaf spring type thing. it is a pain to get back on LOL

kennysvt 09-23-2012 10:02 AM

So they can be replaced without removing that ?

You can use vice grips to put the spring back in place easy.

what bolts are you talking about? the 6mm allen key attaching caliper to bracket, or the ones from the caliper brackets to knuckle???

Really, I got the clip back on in under 30seconds. Its straight forward, pretty easy brakes IMO.
