Default Re: What did you do to your ranger today thread

New unplanned rear brakes , I was on the way to the movies with my girlfriend . I was approaching a stop light and the the pedal started to soft , the more I used the brakes the softer they got . when we go to the movies I checked the backs of the wheels , the right rear was soaked in brake fluid , verdict , blown rear wheel cylinder , contaminated shoes .
I ended up having to replace both cylinders, shoes , adjusters , hardware kit on both sides . I can now stop on a dime and get change

Realized that it's most likely the glazing on my pads/rotors that is causing the brakes to sound like bare hand animal killers. Every time I come to a slow stop, the brakes decide to squeal like i'm killing a pig with my bare hands. It's horrible.
