How-To Tuesday: C6 / C7 Corvette Brake Pad Replacement
I’m not sure that many of you wake up in the morning thinking about how amazing it would be to upgrade the front brake pads on your Corvette. Honestly, I can’t say that I have either. But as we all know quite well, they are kinda required in order to stop your car. Unfortunately for a lot of us, brake pad replacement can get lost in the caliper shuffle.
Fortunately for all of us, the Corvette Forum How-To writers have pulled together a great article on one of the most overlooked, but nearly most important DIY projects: replacing your front brake pads. The article does a fantastic job of walking you through, step by step, the process of swapping out those old brake pads for new ones.
I would have considered this task to be somewhat daunting originally, but after reading the article, well, I won’t say that I’m completely confident, but I’m way closer than I was before I read it.
This project is something that can be done in a short amount of time, for even the least experienced of us all. At the end of the article, there’s also a really helpful YouTube video to reference the entire process. If you’re swapping out your brake pads this weekend, send in some pics and lets us check out your work.
