    Safety Belt Ray….

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lowell Stout says:

    The hub plate is bent you can see it if you back off.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars repair boy says:

    the bracket bent over due to previous accident

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jaxson Hugh says:

    Hey Ray the alignment rack needs to have the lift cables adjusted. You can hear the locks don’t all click at the same time when you are lifting..

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bobs gunk says:

    Looks to me like the axal has moved outward judging by the clean shiny part by the axle seal. How's the other side look?

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brad Haines says:

    need more pins of shame in videos

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stanley Knight says:

    I think that shimming the caliper bracket out would be more of a hack for a hack job than just exchange it for a new/used part. Oh h*** just go ahead put a weld bead on it🤣

    Positive comment for the YouTube algorithm.

    You should really wear your seatbelt when driving on main roads.
    Tisk tisk.

    I know your a mechanic and your in and out of cars all day but man, driving on main roads with no seatbelt is just down right dangerous.
    What would have happened if you got mysteriously Tee boned by a high speed stolen car … no more YouTube videos for your fans = Sad panda

    "UNobtainium" best word I have heard in the longest time.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dennis Waterman says:

    Sounds to me like loose and/or worn spindle/ hub bearings causing the rotor to pitch when turning.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Saul Goodman says:

    Couldn't you have just filed the bracket so it won't be grinding anymore?

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Turbo Tim's World says:

    In my shop I always look for Millage "numbers" like 112233 or 121212 that sort of thing I will test drive a car to settle the clock to a point of just before on on that magic number on the odometer

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Justin Sposito says:

    I think those are 22s

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Perry B. says:

    It’s true, those GM bracketed calipers have become hard to get ahold of. The Core has risen to as much as the part itself is. I work at Autozone and I get tons of upset customers these days. If you find a good deal on something right now, you better get it while you can.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jana Burritt says:

    You are awesome. I love the way 🤔

    Thank you Ray. You are super knowledgeable and thorough. I always learn from you great content.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars brad miller says:

    Shim. Really?! Come on bro.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin PEAF Smith says:

    It's got brake discs and brake shoes in a hub on the same wheel??? Am I seeing things???

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars john davies says:

    axle end float ?

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars john davies says:

    excessive axle end-float
    ?

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars john davies says:

    excessive axle endfloat ?

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars lundtland says:

    Any chance the aftermarket rotors were machined wrong? How would that bracket get bent?

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars D Badgley says:

    ray was there a chance that someone replaced the rotor on the grinding side with one that had the wrong offset. may be rotor for wrong option package or year of car?

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John S says:

    That thing is a dinosaur, surprised it still runs…….

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars kirlu50 says:

    The escalard is a properly vulgar vehicle

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peter Johnson says:

    I want that torque wrench. So shiny! Such a satisfying sound!

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hott Puppy says:

    Leaning toward axle shaft end play. I don't see how this bracket could get bent. If the car hit a curb, the rim would be trashed, not a caliper bracket.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars B1lly W says:

    just a thought Is it possible the chinesium drilled and slotted rotors were made wrong ? I have had this issue with rear rotors form oreilly on 1500hd / 2500 chevys they were machined too thick and were incorrect depth for center of caliper

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JEFFREY KREFT says:

    I have just one question, how the hell did that get bent like that, was this vehicle in an accident?

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TheFonz Ek4 says:

    how tf does a caliper/caliper bracket get bent lol.. someone tried to put on wrong offset wheels maybe?

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars N C T says:

    Use a DTI on the axle or worst on rotor then spin to see runout! Good lord tho is so simple!

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin West says:

    GM trash

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars tommy gullett says:

    Dial indicator is much easier. You had it a part.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeremy Murphy says:

    "Not supposed to be able to use one of these with one hand"
    The first lift I learned to use was at a small town GM dealership and their lifts were of the two-post hydraulic type that had floor-mounted levers that you used your feet on. Easy enough but they didn't lift at the same speed due to the front end of most every car is heavier due to the engine and if you had a diesel or big block pickup on there, you really had to watch out.
    And…the floor levers put you right in front of the vehicle so if you got distracted, you could conceivably drop it off the front post right into your chest.

    Hello. I have requested where your shop is located so I can take my SUV and wife's Truck to you and your shop. Please, let me know where your shop is located. Thank you

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Maury D says:

    As thorough as you usually are, I'm surprised you didn't pop the differential cover and check for side-to-side movement of the axle shafts. A spider gear shim kit might be all that's required to restore proper clearance. Just a guess since I wasn't as close to the problem as you. Your videos are addicting. Keep up the good work and hello from Tennessee.

    You know what they say about guys in white vans ,,lol,

    Fucking hate those heads. The Hawkeye elite is bad ass.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ΘΕΜΙΣΤΟΚΛΗΣ ΚΩΝΣΤΑΝΤΙΝΟΥ says:

    I am thinking of the occasion of bearing disallinment on the rotor hub. A change on bearings and rotors is a possibillity

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MK4 Surgeon says:

    common problem with Chevy's. That's what happens when you over tighten the caliper bolts with an air impact. Someone effed up. If it isn't that it's the damn pad retainer clips, always good to clean them with a wire wheel on used parts as well. Some folks are cheap and don't care if you simply grind the bracket for clearance or shim it as long as it works, we make them sign off on that kind garbage though.
