your emergency brake line runs to the drums at the back of the car, so no. why are you changing the calipers? you will have to take your regular brake lines off for that

i don't street race anymore don't have the time for it. and the reason the brakes are bad is because i don't have time to change them, i have alot of stuff going on that i'm having to take care of at the moment.




the piston in the caliper was stuck...and yea i've got a new rotor for it..only one wheel really had the brakes worn that bad to damage the rotor...all the calipers and stuff to while i'm at it. since i was gonna have to replace the pads and god knows how many years these calipers have been on here...

here is a pic of the pad that came off.

yeah that sucks but could have saved yourself some major $$$ by changing the pads and cutting the rotors before you wore them all the way out....

he said the piston was stuck, it had to have been stuck inside the caliper for there to be enough room for the pad to fall out

Even that would not allow them to fall out. The pads have ears.

I've seen some bad brakes.. people wear the lining of the pad out, then the metal backing of the pad, then the PISTON starts rubbing the rotor... a set of new rotors, pads, and calipers later... the brakes are working again.

Then you see people in town who have no brakes, so they are trying to shove the tranny in reverse to slow down.... (loud grinding noise as reverse lights come on) Maybe my logic is false, but I think replacing the brakes is cheaper than replacing the tranny... lol.
