What do you think about this video?

Greyson Seth: Also, do you guys happen to have a tutorial for the hub/rotor assembly version? I
guess on the 99 model of mine, there were two types. My rotors have the
wheel bearings inside them. (old school) And I'm afraid they are going out
as well as the brakes. I guess it's good in a sense that I'll hit it all in one job...But I haven't taken it apart yet and I don't know if it will be a simple swap and hang...or more importantly what all I will need to order to get the job done.
Thanks.

Greyson Seth: So when you added the grease, did you just add it where the brakes slide in or did you grease the slider pins as well? I've heard to make sure and do this to avoid it seizing up.

Tim Schell: Thanks for your videos! They have helped me with so many DIY repairs. But I'm stumped on this one.
I removed the calipers and the 2 bolts on the caliper bracket but I can't get the front rotors off. Am I missing something?
Could they be rusted onto the hub?

Lazarus Divine: 7 yrs later and you are still the best on the tube, thanks for all the lessons.

GeneCARRASCA: I know this is done on a 4x4 but how do I remove front rotors on my 1996 Explorer XLT model with 2WD?

RonInfinity: your amazing man thanks for the help

TommyVT28: 1A  rocks I ordered my parts on a wed around 11:00pm CT and they got here in Tenn Friday just in time for a week end honey do lol couldn't ask for better service.! O by the way make sure you clean the grease off of new rotors and if you touch them "No Grease on them or they where out faster"and the price for a set was 1/3 the cost of just 1 rotor at the parts place so call 1A st I do.!!!

Syl Abys: What brand of Brake Pads do you recommend?

Bernardo Padilla: this was a great video, and a lot of help.

senatorjoker: This video is really good. I just changed front pads and rotor on my 2003 Ford Explorer.  Pretty much the same except Caliper bolt needs 14mm wrench and bracket needs 18mm wrench.  I also discovered when one of the bracket bolts wouldn't break loose that the Lug wrench is the same size and worked great to loosen the bolt. Also be sure to remove the cap on the brake fluid reservoir before attempting to push the pistons back in.

The_Disabled_Gamer#2: This is a terrific video and it helped me out allot, thanks :-)

Christopher Staffan: Great video! Thanks a lot! Did everything exactly how you said and not a problem whatsoever. Had no idea how to do it at first but you saved me a lot of money.

Chris Bream: do you have to bleed the brakes when changing pads? 

justin dickey: thanks for the help...went pretty easy after watching your video

Scott Kenneth: Thanks man!!!

Antonio Girley: Man This was on Point !!

Can I Just Use a Regular Socket wrench Cause i Don have a Torque Wrench ??
  

VfishV: Thanks for the help man :)

David Bruce: This guy is the coolest dude on the web! I absolutely love his videos, and I hope he's making a good living with his auto parts biz. Truly a good guy...

Galen Linder: Was Ford using metric bolts in 1998?

Eddy Dean: Thanks for putting this video together and showing just how to do a brake job and rotor replacement, I do videos of my different singing gigs and I KNOW just how MUCH work goes in to editing these videos!!
Also, LOVE that Red 1966 Pontiac GTO in the background, ONE of the Best Muscle Cars to come out of Detroit!! MY dad ordered from the factory a 1964 GTO in Nocturne Blue...It was BEAUTIFUL!!
