Next time you should only zoom in on the caliper or something, make it a bit more challenging lol. Just kidding, good luck

If anyone wants me to pull the parts for them its gonna cost you. Like $400. lol

I started on a crown vic and I got everythign but the backing plate pulled. I went to pull the axle shafts. I pulled the diff cover (stainless btw I took that too) only to find the retainer pin on the back side of the carrier. There was an hour and a half wasted.

I started to pull one side on an explorer only to find that the other side was missing.

Finally I found one that had everything I needed...except the slider pins...and I forgot to grab them off the other explorer DOH! So now i need to find a couple of them and ive got everything.

As I was getting the last bolt off the wrench slipped and flew into a gas tank through the hole where the pump should be, so I fought with that for 15 minutes to get my wrench back.

3.5 hours spent at the JY today. Luckly they gave me the diff cover for free.

Any ideas on how much it costs to get rotors turned? The pads are in decent shape and will work for a while. And then comes the subject of brake lines....
