Great advice techrep/05 super/solpushcart, and good job Duane for searching and wanting to obtain a repair book. Rare these days. Hats off to you.
There are tons of links on this forum for the DIY'er, unfortunately we usually get bashed if we suggest the search tool. Most do not want to look for information, but would rather have it re-written to them in their post.
While these forums are great for gathering information on "how to do", it still requires the "do it yourself-er" to have tools and know how to complete the task. Repair manuals and proper tools are the first two items any person that wants to perform their own repair needs to have.
Replacing disk brake pads is not a difficult task, and does not require any specialty tools to do the job. As mentioned, a Hayes or Chiltons repair book for your year truck will help you do this job, and will pay for itself in labor costs on this first repair. Expect to pay around $25.00 for the book.
Post back on how you did, along with a pic of your truck. Glad to have you aboard!
