I had to use the Urban dictionary to figure out WTF a mamanem is. And it worked! :unicornrainbow:

Of course, it came in handy when I looked up just about every phrase of the Dirty Sanchez song here on the BN.
I sure do miss those old songs.

If you are unsure you should leave it to a mechanic, barkes only really have 1 function which is really important.

If you are like me and want to do as much as you can yourself, do a youtube search on the process.

Also, when you reassemble everything, make sure the big nut holding the caliper to the arm are on tight. If you don't your wheel will rip that fucker off.

Hypothetically, that is.

If it did, it would have been because I tried to put some kind of anti-rust spray on the nut since it was such a phenomenal pain in the ass to remove in the first place. I would have also had to go to a salvage yard to get a replacement nut and fix it in the parking lot of my work, then drive 30 miles home on a 65mph highway with my asshole clenched tighter than a white boy in a prison shower.

If it happened. :asshat:

That can't be stressed enough!!! Make sure you have that before you take everything apart. I speak from experience. It was a really long walk to the hard ware store on a 100+ degree day...

Does anyone know how I would go about finding out whether I have vacuum assist or hydraulic assist brakes? I'm having a tough time with this one.

I'm not going to be too much help, because i thought they were both. why not buy both sets and return the unused ones?
