Shawn, You haven't read the Haynes have you. You haven't gone to and read his procedures have you.

You have to use your resources.

I'll give you some hints: You don't disconnect the parking brake cable. You use two large screw drives to pry back the pads. You take the calipers off with the two large bolts. Use a wire coat hanger to support the calipers -- don't disconnect the hydraulics to the calipers.

Don't use red grease on the bearings. Use the dark gray moly base grease.

Replace all of the seals. You will bend them beyond usefulness when you remove them.

If you have to pound on any part you are doing it wrong.

When was the last time you changed your timing and balance belts and/or cam chain and tensioner?
