Thanks for the tip.  All the parts store ones are recycled China scrap.  I broke down today.  The suburban brakes feel a bit soft yet.  And the rears feel extra hot imo.  The ABS light has been pestering me for a long time.  Module code...wonder if a valve issue caused the excessive wear?  So i called the dealer (good shop) and dropped it by to dbl check my work.  We have a 4 hr trip coming up so I felt better if they are 100% correct.  My 05 2500 finally needed rear pads at 195000.  This thing is on 2nd set.  I guess pickup 1500 are fine just suburbans have some rear issues.

I'd be suspicious of the rear brake hose from the frame to the axle. If it's coming apart inside, it may be acting as a check valve holding pressure on the calipers. I've had that happen twice in my life.

 

    

He's right about the brake hose but if you do one I'd do all three rear hoses, hoses are cheap brakes are priceless! Another thing I always check is to make sure the caliper slides move freely and are well lubed especially in the rear, they catch a lot of moisture and debris from the road one tear in the boot and they're stuck. G.M. had a few problems with their electronic brake control modules in the early 00s down here in the salt belt I've seen a lot of a.b.s pump motors stick. I bleed Chevy orange but I gotta give Ford credit they bump the a.b.s. motor every ignition cycle, you Ford guys have prob heard it sounds like an exhale from the LF corner of your super duty. The whole time I worked for the g.m. dealer the pedal feel was an issue with customers, good luck with your sub.

ABS mod was sticking.  Holding rears on a bit.  NLA! This gen was built till 06 and NLA!?  Had yo get tested junk yard one.  No one dares rebuild them b/c federal offence to mess with brakes.

Wow nla and a 2006 that's...impressive... I fear that soon more will be like that to keep us in newer vehicles. Less used cars more new cars.

Wonder how long the used one will last..?

....luis can do chassis stuff.  Brake brains would make me a bit nervous.  I think a friend said ebay has em.  But i bet the shop would not install them for liability.  They got it.....wrong one.  Tomorrow she gets it back.

Worked on a leaking irrigation safty valve today....for 5 hrs.  Still leaks.  In 1 i could of cut it oit and welded r up.  On list for tomorrow.

Troy, U see anything interesting flying over head yet like an F-35?

Yep, its fast and odd sounding.  Going to the show?  Something is flying around now even this early.  They did the fireworks off airplane show last night and a F118 display.  Dusk is sweet, you see the afterburners kick on.

That goat barn is neat.  I think the DeJong family has a similar on in Kauliforniah.

Troy, Went across the border today to the show, Seeing a super hornet fly is nothing new, however, Boeing was there with their new improved block 2 super hornet  which was out fitted with wing tip missiles plus 3 under each wing which made the plane 5,000 lbs heavier. 

The demo team did their sales demonstration with the plane which is more aggressive flying when compared to what a navy demo would be at a show according to the announcer. 

There where 2 F-35's there, 1 was on display, I didn't see either fly. So disappointed by that.Other wise a good day for a show.

The f35 flew around a bit before landing.  Sounds like something from a Terminator movie.  The Breitling guys were good

Careful with that, we spent 6 years with hay burners after a similar episode. 

 

Danners are good boots, you will enjoy them. I am still wearing out the Carolina's with no complaints

That make more than the milk would!  Always kinda amazed how amazed people are to attach a machine or strip a few squirts out.

No justice to reality.  Full moon wed nite 930p.  Irrigation is the white.  Was like 65 and dead calm, very pretty.  Then the cows got out at 1230a....
