Putting the brakes on

Literally. I stopped at Tractor Supply this afternoon to pick up about 1000lbs of feed. As I was parking, the brakes went soft and felt odd. I backed up and drove forward again, and heard a metal noise under the truck. I hopped out to to find brake pads laying under the right rear wheel.
I decided not to load a bunch of feed into the truck, and instead limped home.
Tomorrow morning I will finish replacing the pads, rotors, and calipers. Then I might check the front brakes…

  1. Wow! So glad you caught this before you were trailering down I 395! Good luck with the brake job tomorrow — hope the weather cooperates with you!
