What do you think about this video?

IslandersGuy: Thank you for taking the time in making this video. It was very helpful and you saved me a ton of money...

Danny Ramos: I need to replace the rotors ,brakes pads,backing plates and shoes my 2000 Chevy blazer LT does this same method apply to my truck?

Don Alvis: Hi - what is the proper torque value for the bearing assembly MOUNT BOLTS for the 2000 RWD Blazer?

574ak49: We use to call it a Texas Impact. The hammer trick that is.....

deeck oliver: i have a 2001 blazer that has bad hubs. ill be watching this when i change them this weekend. lol

King Ian: definitely a big shoutout to EricTheCarGuy and 1A Auto...

A1Googler: Darn. This was the front wheel, wasn't it? No wheel hub on back.
How do you replace studs on back wheels?

Shannon Todd: No grease??

sbigelow1: 1999 Blazer is completely different. There's a 36mm nut holding the hub in place.

Allen Gardner: I'm going to have the do this job soon on my Blazer. would you recommend doing both sides? Also is it required to get a alignment done after? Thank you for this video, it looks easy enough.

Sean Tyson: if i do not want to replace the brake pads, can i just take the caliper off the hub as a whole by just removing the two bracket bolts? or do i have to take it apart piece by piece?

Gregg Barnett: Wanted to ask if you had to bleed the brakes after changing the pads and pushing the Caliper Pistons back in. Normally I take the cap off the Master Cylinder before I push them back in. I just bought a 2000 Blazer and the Pads are going bad. I plan to change them in the next couple days, but I haven't had to change pads on anything newer than that before. It's not the latest year model car that I own, but I haven't had to change pads on anything newer than that because I normally take my car to the shop for anything needing to be done. It's still under warranty and I always let the Chevrolet Dealer do any work to it. However, I bought this Blazer to putt around in. I've always had to bleed brakes whenever I changed them prior and just wanted to see if you bled them. Thanks !!!

John Clapham: Just finished this job for my 1998 Chevy Blazer (LS - 4 door - 2wd). This video instruction was spot on. Thank you Jeremy Fountain for putting this together. My vehicle did not have a hub so it was really straight forward. I used a bucket to support the Caliper and this also made it easier to compress the pistons with a tool kit I bought on Amazon. I used a 24" breaker bar (1/2 inch drive and 3/8 adapter for it) for the difficult bolts. I also bought a Caliper piston wind back tool kit from Amazon to help with the job. I used lubricant specific for the caliper slide pins, loctite threadlocker (blue type which is removable) for the bolts that needed to stay put, and grease rated for high temperature brake use for the brake pad paths (metal on metal areas). I also used "no squeal" for the brake pads themselves to stop the squealing that I had been noticing. I used a torque wrench to torque everything (lug nuts included - star pattern for the lugs) to factory specs. I made sure to tighten the brake fluid reservoir cap (I needed to loosen it to compress the caliper pistons). I pumped up the brakes (they are very soft after this job) and once the brake pressure was back to normal, I test drove the Blazer and didn't experience any problems. Great video, excellent guidance. I had never done this type of job before.

AFrame88: 1st time seeing any of your vids, but I've been a fan of 1A autos walk through videos for a couple years now, and Eric the car guy, I found him out a few years back as well. He's still making videos.
Cheers.

John Walker: rockauto has a better price,better selection and you get what you pay for!

Michael DeMark: i recently had the hub bearing changed same side same issue. when i got the car back it was acting funny. the abs was acting up and almost did not stop a few times....very mushy when i applied brakes. what is the possible issues. the mechanic explained my brake booster or the pump it had no issues until i got the trailblazer back. its dangerous to drive what is the possible issues so i can talk to this guy about fixing the issue

Lex Thatsall: Mr. Fountain, a question: I have a 2wd sonoma made in 01. Would I be looking at the exact same parts as you dealt with in this video?

Adrian E.: quick and easy, nice.

James Lotz: Amazon has this hub for $29, ceramic pads for $22 and free shipping. Can't beat that.

Zachary Meyer: I really appreciated this video.I am replacing my breakpads and cannot get the dang bolts loosened to remove the caliper. i dont wiegh enough apparently at 220. had my full wieght on it and no loosey lol. even used a hammer. guess ill have to use some wd40

Schools: Learn how to get phlebotomy training in California! The job pays decent money for the amount of schools needed to graduate.
