How to Install a Rear Brake Rotor on a ’05 GMC Envoy

59

When I heard a grinding sound from the rear of my 2005 Envoy, it reminded me that I hadn’t checked the rear brakes in too long. Once I pulled the rear wheels off, I found that the rear pads had gotten so low that they wore deep grooves into the rotors. Replacing the pads and rotors on the rear of my Envoy was not much different than any other standard brake job.

I lifted the rear by the center contact point on the rear differential housing, and put jack stands under the rear axle on both sides of the differential housing.
