Hey guys,

Here is a video I made of the steps I took to change the brake pads and rotors on my 2007 chevy silverado. I know most know how to do this but for those wondering how it is done, these are the steps I used. Hopefully it will give you the confidence to tackle the job yourself. As you will see it is a simple job with just a few tools needed.



Also here is the video of how I flushed the brake fluid and bled the system

Will gravity be enough to bleed/flush the brakes also?

I would doubt it, especially when it comes to the rear brakes, it will take some pressure to get all of that fluid pushed pushed through the lines.
