Love all the tips everyone...keep them coming. I'll be consumed with work over the next two weeks so I won't be starting the project until the second half of February. That should give me plenty of time to read all of the tips and gather supplies.

- Pulled off wheels, calipers, rotors, pads on both sides.
- Drained bearings. Refilled oil. Everything inside the bearings looks good.
- Right side pads were almost non-existent. Caliber appears stuck in the closed position. Ordered replacement caliper and pads.
- Left side pads and caliper look fine, caliper was not the factory one like on the right side.

More later...

- New caliper delivered yesterday...Kodiak 225. Found it online for $76.
- Bled the brake lines, filled with fresh brake fluid
- Replaced caliper
- Put the wheels back on, shined up the rims and added them to the list of things that look better now than when I bought it two years ago.

Done and done!
