i finally decided to get off my chair and do the swap the brakes on my 2 cars...



now heres the trouble im haveing with the single piston calipers... after undoing the bottem bolt to let the caliper swing out so i can install the pads... the caliper will only swing up a quarter the way... in the fsm is says that it should go all the way up... what am i doing wrong... it almost seems that when i move the caliper somethings tighting up on me...



is there something else im supposed to losen up?
