HELP!...Having Problems Taking Off The Front Brack

I've finished installing my cross drilled and slotted rear rotors and calipers and pads.

I'm having problems loosening the two 19mm bolts off the front brackets in order to take off the rotors.

Anybody have any suggestions to loosen the bolts without stripping it?

Pb blaster and CRC power lube and pretty much the same. Just CRC is usually easier to fine....just a hint. Also stay away from WD-40...to save money they add water to it!.

Awesome job on the tune up! post some pics of the brakes when your all done.

Finally Got the Front Brake Brackets Off!!!

Thanks guys...I've was able to get the brackets off my front brakes to remove the old rotors...

The PB Blaster really works in combination with a longer rachet for more leverage...

I should be now be able to replace the front rotors with the new slotted/cross drilled rotors and install the new calipers and pads.

Next Up....

Bleed my brakes
Change my oil
Change my automatic transmission fluid
Flush my radiator fluid
Replace my exhaust with an OBX dual tip performance muffler ($62 including shipping from www.ebay.com - Motor Energy)
Detail the car interior/exterior
Register the car
