New to me 2003 Wrangler Sahara and i have a question. I need to replace my rear brakes (disc) and wondering if there are any tips, it looks pretty straight forward. Thanks Kevin

I have never worked on a wrangler with rear disc brakes before. It should be fairly simple sometimes the rear calipers use a different bolt then the standard socket, but other than that there should be no problem. Make sure you use lots of brake grease to prevent noise, and replace or turn the rotors.
No more jeep for now
But I have free kandy and kittens in the back of my van

I have done a lot of rear disc's on other vehicles but not a wrangler. The only thing you need to know is how the piston gets reset, some you push in and some you have to tun in. If you plan to keep the jeep for a while I you may want to invest in the proper tool to do that. I have al the different tools in you are in NW NJ.

You can aslo get teh Factory Service Manuals off this forum. Here is the link to the posting:

Easy, simple, and straightforward.
