Hi,

Replacing front brakes and rotors really isn't too hard of a job. You can expect them to last approximately 25,000 miles, but that varies based on driving habits and terrain.

To get started, here is a link that shows in general how it is done. You can use this as a guide.

Here is a video showing it done on a slightly older F-150. However, the process is very similar.

If you look at the attached pics, they provide the directions and pics specific to your vehicle.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have other questions.

Take care,
Joe
