Replacing Rear Brake Pads and Rotors

I have a constant scraping from the rear which changes or gets worse whenever I step on the brakes. On closer inspection of the rotors, I notice that they were quite worn. Not a hard job to replace everything, but one I really don’t relish doing again soon so instead of trying to have the brake rotors turned or resurfaced I just decided to replace them. They aren’t that expensive, and brakes are kind of important.

So, here is the job I hope to be doing this weekend. If the parts come in on time. Nice thing is that it is a long three-day weekend. Hopefully, I will also do a few more jobs too, like oil change, coolant flush, replace door linkage, etc…

I will let you know how it goes. And if the noise goes away.  I fully expect to be doing the front in a few more week. If all goes according to plan, I will be doing the front brakes about the same time I replace the ball joints and a few other pieces of the front suspension.
