    Anyone have any information on doing a brake job on a '04 Elantra? The faster I get this done, the sooner I can send my barrel in to King Armory!

    Please help, Thanks.

    - Remove Wheel
    - Remove 1 of the 2 Caliper Bolts
    - Loosen Other Caliper Bolt
    - Swing Caliper Off Rotor
    - Remove Old Pads
    - Open Hood
    - Open the Brake Fluid Reservoir
    - Using Old Brake Pads and a C-Clamp / Large Pliers Push the Brake Caliper Pistons In
    - Install New Pads & Install All Misc. Hardware (Pins, Clips, Backing Plates, Etc.)
    - Make Sure Caliper Pins are Greased
    - Clean Up any Brake Fluid Overflow from Reservoir

    Make sure the brake fluid is a light amber. If it's a dark color then it's absorbed water and should be bled out of the system.

    It's really easy and all you need are some wrenches and something to push in the pistons.

    Texas1911, thanks man, That's what I needed!

    Acesn8's, yeah, it's going in as soon as I can get this done and save up the cash. Maybe by then the stainless sleeve will be ready. :D

    DEFKON99, that's a great idea, I'll check it out tonight and see what I can get. Thanks!
