I need to replace the disc brake pads on the front wheels. All the online information that I can get online shows a brake system that is very different than mine. How do I find a system like mine?
Do you
have the same problem?

These diagrams/pictures are nothing like what I have on my pickup. Mine has 8 lug nuts on it, you loosen 2 bolts and the whole thing comes off together, it's almost impossible to remove the anti-rattle clips without destroying them ( I put new ones on). Then when you put them back together there is an order that you need to follow to get it to work, the diagrams/pictures that you sent shows none of this. It would have been really helpful! Thanks
