Greyhawk Brakes

I just had the left front caliper lock up on me. I figure with 50K miles I might just replace everything, Calipers, Rotors, wheel bearings and pads.

Does anyone have any suggestions on things I need to watch out for while doing this. Part mfg's that I might want to avoid. etc...

Thanks

A good rule of thumb is to make sure you replaced both left and right side brake calipers and brake pads at the same time. If you are not going to replace the rotors have them resurfaced back to a true surface. Make sure you pack the wheel bearing really good and get new hub seals. Did you find out what caused the brake lock-up? Possible causes: Brake caliper sticking, brake caliper slides sticking, brake hose internally braking down. Make sure to lube brake caliper slides, back side of brake pads (where they contact the brake caliper). This helps prevent the brake from squealing. Good Luck
