I have a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4X4 and it's in need of new
brake pads. I used to do all my own work on my vehicles up until you
needed a bazillion specialy tools and a $10K computer to replace
something. My Jeep needs brakes and I was wondering if anyone knew if
there's anything special to consider when doing that on this vehicle
or is it the same old replace, bleed and go deal? Don't want to get
into anything I can't finish but if it's 1/4 the price to do it
myself, I am more then willing to take the time.
Any words of wisdom?
Probably wise to get a shop manual for your specific vehicle, and also
check with the dealer for any service bulletins. Not all issues result
in recalls. There may be issues with the brakes in your vehicle that
are supposed to be addressed at the time of any brake work being
Brakes are pretty important!
Pads and rotors but you really should have them refaced or you'll have
early wear on the replacements. Need piston clamp; normally the parts
places will loan them for a refundable charge or rent them pretty cheaply...
