Okay,I Googled insturstion and came up with nothing.But about replacing brakes and rotors,The very first thing you must do is go to your nearest auto parts store and plunk down the money for a Haynes manual for your truck.Sit down and read it for an hour or two.Now you will be armed with the knowledge of what parts are required,what tools you'll need / have to buy.You'll learn your truck , have fun , and save a bunch of money!!!!
Well, skinned knuckles aren't really that much fun.

I just did mine and it was super easy. Just follow instructions very easy, espically when putting them back together. A good set of jack stands helps to.

I paid $190 for new pads and rotors. I got ceramic pads and upgraded rotors. Not sure if I got ripped off or not.
