    I do love your interaction with Mrs. O and your kids. Do you have 3 or 2 with a friend over? You all definitely mesh together very well. Even though this comment is from a 2 year old video I hope it’s read and know how much people value a tradesman(mechanic) that is spot on and rock solid!! Wondering, is it time soon for a new Jeep hat or would that take all the magic out of that one?? Driver for a long time, I do value me a good comfy cap🥰😎and I’m bald so even better for sunburn. Love your content and you’ll stay safe, sending love🤘🤘David( AKA, Chuckwagon) does anyone still use CB’s?? 🥺🥺😢

    Not sure if Amazon told YouTube that I just ordered rotors and pads but the timing of this suggested video is either perfect or fuel for conspiracy theories

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Anton Matievski says:

    It's SO SWEET that Ms.O let's you know when you have fans visiting. And it's even cooler that you drop what you're doing and come say hi to your fans. Thanks for coming out to say hi to me that one time Eric!

    Why the hell …would a utuber …stop by with donuts…..in a workin mans business to bond…..it’s his job….no time to stop for tea and crumpets….you want to keep the videos coming throw him a 100 bill in the mail…and tell him your story..this is a business…not the ymca..and. What’s worst the part that really pisses me off…..it’s not krispy kream.. donuts.

    Who out there uses silicone sealant between the pads and caliper?

    great,great,great,great,great.I,d bring my car to your garage but I live in florida.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dennis Fox says:

    Good one, Have to do mine when the rain stops, hopefully soon. Hope that Honda brake clean work on my old 2001 Silverado.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin OConnell says:

    Ok so no I notice no grease is applied to the slide surface that the pads slide in but you coat up the areas the glides sit in etc. I was taught to grease the area where the pads are as well. is that a bad idea? Thanks much…

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Patrick Thompson says:

    I worked at a dealership for eight years, and I never, NEVER saw anyone clean the caliper adapter bracket contact surfaces. I think we had one guy who regularly used the 3M cookies to clean up hubs and such. Didn't know there was anyone left in the repair business who cared about the quality of their work. Guess that's why I keep watching.

    ABS light went off on startup as it should at 3 seconds according to manual .

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J2345 says:

    I have a question concerning my 2006 Silverado 1500 5.3 L , 4×4 extended cab. I installed a GM brake line kit, plus the 2 over the rear axle. Bleed according to directions, right rear, left rear, right front, and driver front. Fixed 3 leaks. Drove around a few blocks but still have a spongy pedal.
    What should I do?

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Doug Mottert says:

    do you leave the cap off the brake fluid when you push back the calipers? when doing a brake job.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Royce Woods says:

    Rotors are certified safe, right to the scene of the crash.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Frankie Rosati says:

    Hey Eric, Merry Christmas! I have a question about this body style Chevy. No matter how clean I get the caliper bracket ears and put in new hardware, the pads fit too snug to move freely. Am I doing something wrong? Almost seems like the pads are too long.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tim Gruver says:

    Buys brake clean by the case!!!

    beautiful family

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars george rocks says:

    I notice on your brake videos that sometimes you install pads dry in the caliper, or other times you lube up the ears with brake paste. Sometimes, just under the pad clips hardware. I trust your knowledge and experience, so should pad ears be lubed or not, or under the clips?
