    Discs are easy {don't forget the anti-squeak grease}....Old drums with their return and parking brake springs and adjustments were tougher

    Brakes are easy, unless the bolts get corroded solid.

    I've needed to do mine forever.

    Once I'm cleared from surgery, I am knocking that shit out. It's a task I enjoy doing.

    Try rebuilding a Thermoquad.
    Rear parking brakes on a BMW
    Or adjusting a power sunroof on a 72 Charger.
    For filth changing any automatic transmission without a drain in a pan.

    Try putting STP Fuel Injector cleaner in the gas tank of a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The cap on the bottle is a bitch.

    Speed bleeders will save you time and headache. They are pretty cheap too.
