Re: Front brakes make grinding sound when stopping.
That looks so much easier than doing one wheel at a time. I have a 2 1/4 ton jack, though. I don't think it's heavy-duty enough to lift the entire front or back of the truck at the same time. One wheel at a time might be the only method I'll be able to follow. The one I have works just fine for our Accord, but I have yet to have to jack up the Ridge. I'm planning on doing it over the next few weeks to replace the pads and do a brake fluid change.
Anyways, Tnridgeliner, does this grinding noise still happen even after you've been driving for a while? Usually, if the truck sits overnight and there is any moisture in the air, you'll get some oxidation on the rotors that will rub off after the first few applications of the brakes. Has this just started happening, or has it been going on since you first put the brakes on? As was asked before, did you make sure the slide pins were lubed? That seems to be a commonly overlooked thing that can affect braking performance/sound. I'm not quite sure if it would cause the grinding sound like you're describing though...
