Greetings ~

Wife is dricing a 99 SE Vulcan, 79k, discs all around. I replaced the fronts last year with Brembo rotors and ceramic pads, but just recently the rear brakes are starting to squeel.

I assume the sqeeling when the brakes are applied is the pads telling me there are soon to go...

So, is replacing the rears the same as the fronts, or is there something I need to knwo when replacing the pads in the back? Also, are the OEM pads ceramic on the 99 SE?

Any help is appreciated.

Didn't even know you could get a Non-SHO Sedan with rear discs...well, I imagine if they are the same as the wagon, that they will be the same single piston caliper setup as the front.

The rear piston must be rotated as the piston is pushed in. AutoZone has an excellent tool for the job for free rental.

Yeah? Autozone sold me an 8 dollar tool that didn't fit.
Wound up using needle nose pliers.

Take the bleeder screw out when screwing it in, much easier. It also screws in clockwise.
