Installing brake hardware isn’t really that difficult, but if it’s not done properly it can cause many problems, the most common being brake noise. Usually, improper brake hardware installation leads to brake pad chatter or squeaking, but on this Ford F250, the $4 hardware got twisted and actually ruined the $70 rotor! Ordinarily a small grove could be machined out, but this rotor was too close to its discard spec to turn. It’s impossible to tell you exactly how to install every piece on every vehicle in this short post, but take care when doing a brake job and pay close attention to the factory hardware. Make sure you install the new hardware just like the old came off and only remove one piece at a time.
Good luck with your next brake job and Happy Wrenching!
