I was checking over the brakes on my 2004 X-star trailer and noticed the pads are getting thin on the front axle.

I was told that these pads are the same from a Chev Cavalier? Can someone confirm this for me including year and model.

I would like to go out and buy them from the local dealer as I can install them myself.


Cheers

no no read carefully...

2004 X-Star trailer
2008 40th Anniversary

I didn't want to buy a trailer for $9k... I can't justify spend that much when the boat sits at cottage 97% of the season.

check your calipers, they could be dragging (common problem)
Pull the trailer around a few miles, then jack up each wheel and spin it. If they don't spin easily, you need new calipers (pads too). I replaced mine on both of my MC trailers (2003 and 2005)
Call Clay at Reliable, he should be able to help you (read between the lines here)

I assume that is common with the trailers? The sliders were well lubricated... hmmm

but you are right.. they were dragging a bit on front axles.. not rear.... I will test it out!

Thanks for the info...
