rear brakes

Hats off to the MoCo for redsigning the rear brake caliper,putting rear pads on are a snap,this is the second thing that i have found to be easier to replace than om my 01 RG,the first was the gas tank

2012 RG Vivid Black,contrast Anarchy wheels,SE air cleaner,cobra tuner,Thunderheader ,diamond cut heads and clys,Fueling Reaper 574 cams,this is just a starting point.

I did my front and rear brakes, it took me longer to loosen the bolts than anything else, extremely easy. I couldn't see paying somebody to do it.

Is there anything special that needs to be done due to the ABS?

Nope.

Just make sure if you pull the axle, you get the abs pickup back in the right spot and the wire is safe from damage.

never changed my brakes... am I guessing from your post correctly that you have to remove the front tire to replace the front pads?

I always inspect and replace in conjunction with tire replacement. Don't know if you can replace pads with the wheel mounted.

I had to remove one of my front calipers to get my front wheel off to take it in for a tire change. For those with single disc brakes it should be easier. You can take the caliper off with 2 bolts. Not that big of an issue.

Dont think you have to remove the front tire to replace the pads just take care working the caliper out around the fender
