Whoop!! Send photos and keep us posted! Sounds like a good time. You'll be close to my stomping grounds down there in AZ. If you run into any issues close to Nebraska, give ma holler.

Yup, and following the link you provided we're in the quarantine area, so I'm not the first to spot them. I'll have to look again to be certain that's what I saw. We're in a very suburban area, not too many farms around, but there are plenty of large wooded areas and large parks and such.

Glad I rotated tires today. I had kinda forgotten that when I went to do my rear brakes I only did the drivers side when the slide puns stuck and I wrecked the rotor.

Passenger side needed pads and they were a pain as I expected. Only thing you can get on the upper caliper bolt is a 24mm wrench. Had to use a floor jack to push on the wrench to break it loose then double wrench it the rest of the way. Really glad the rotor was OK so I didn't have to pull the hub off and mess with all that.

I just did my rear brakes a few days ago. I heard grinding and thought "oh crap". I'll have to post a photo because the pass. side was toast due to a stuck slide pin. I could NOT get thing out with anything....heat, vise, spray lube buster...NOTHING. So, I had to put it back together with a new rotor and pads to use for getting my horses home, but I'll be taking it apart this week again with a new caliper bracket and pins while crossing my fingers that the new rotor is ok.

Never buy an old stone house, at least not one from the 40's. And if you do, don't replace the front door. But if you do that, don't do it on the hottest flippin' weekend of the year. But - oh I'll just skip to the end. Front door replacements are not supposed to involve 6 hours with a jackhammer.

does yours just slip over the wheel studs? I miss them on the 250. When I did the rear on the 450 to get the rotor off I had to remove the axle shaft and hub / rotor assembly then unbolt the rotor from the hub.

Yep mine was about that bad too.

Yeah, mine just slips over. The brakes are as easy as the front as far as working on. I wonder why it's different on the 250 or the 450?

I have lots of them, and most still sound brand new. They are making a come back in some circles of audiophiles.

Good morning from Myrtle Beach. This is the first time in about 12 years we've come to the beach without the camper. We're in a condo for the week. We drove my wife's Imapla down.
