Default Replacing Rear brakes

I replaced my fronts last weekend, and talk about easy. 15-20 minutes a side.

Now I am going to replace my rears, but the set up is a little different with no pin holes in the pad. I'm just wondering if there's anything I should know to save time or something I may over look as I haven't pulled the rears off to look at it yet. Any advice would be welcome as I plan to hop into it this afternoon.

wow talk about easy. Pop the cap of brake res, two 9/16th's bolts to release caliper, c-clamp to back of piston and done. I don't think you can get any easier, and for top of the line pads from advance costing me $80 for fronts and $49 for rear, it sure beats the heck out of Hendrick Cadillac / Hummer wanting $849 for both

I never use aftermarket brake pads anymore. Too many issues witht hem over the years. Also, for Hummer H2, the OE's brake great and last forever. I have 70,000 and still running the original front pads! Next spring will put new GM pads and GM rotors on the front

Thumbs up Re: Replacing Rear brakes

Thanks for posting blindzebra...
About to do my back pads and wonderd about what to find.

Sound more like a traditional brake then the fronts were!
