Ford F350 Super Duty Powerstroke Dually Rear Brake Replacement

I needed to replace the caliper on the right side and both rotors. I installed ceramic brake pads and bled out the new caliper. The job took about 2 hours and cost just under $250.

Where did you get the spindle nut wrench tool?

GREAT video! Thanx. What are the torques for the caliper bracket, rotor to
the hub, and those axle end caps. Thank you.

This video did help and saved me probably 10+ hrs of labor cost on my 2000
F350 crew cab.Replaced rotor pads and drum pads all springs rubber pin
sleeves and parking brake pad keepers. Pulled one side at a time. Pulled
1st axle pulled 1st rear drum/disk assembly. Separated rotor from drum then
reassembled new disk/drum. Installed new springs and pad keeper pin on
parking brake assembly. Touched the disk pads with a small grinder so they
would operate more freely with less resistance. Reassembled and torqued all
bolts.Two rotors, disk pads, and drum pads about $191.00 Spring kit for
parking brake about $23. And disk kit included pin sleeves and pad

I never overlook safety... truck is still on the road today with those
brake pads, rotor and caliper. If you noticed the truck was on 3 ton
stands. Being on the grass has nothing to do with anything... if you look
close you can see there is board under each stand... I guess I don't see
the point in your comments is all I'm saying. Thanks for watching!

LOL Another guy trying to scare people into paying for things they don't
have to... You probably work at dealer or worse yet run your own rip off
shop charging people for your "expertise" Dude please stop... LOL I will
never stop until everyone knows that these jobs can be done at home....

Author EdzGarage ( ago)
No, I don't remember anything unusual I had to do.

Author RickM1953 ( ago)
Did you do anything special to remove the hub plate? Mine feels like it's
being sucked back in.

They do love diesel, but they have a lot power too.

Great Video. Thanks. I get 10 mpg in town pulling a lawn trailer but I have

year average figure.

hi nice video what brand parts did you use and are you happy with them

Author EdzGarage ( ago)
Mine gets 17 - 18 Highway and 13 - 14 City. Pulling my 30ft camper it gets
10 - 12. It's been a great truck too.

ed whats your mpg like? I am looking at a crewcab dually f350 1998.

Author EdzGarage ( ago)
The axle fluid keeps them lubricated.

Author squarejsj ( ago)
Do the bearings that are in these floating axles need to be packed with
grease like other bearings, or does the axle fluid itself provide enough
lubrication ?

Author EdzGarage ( ago)
If you're unsure use a torque wrench.

How do you know when you have torqed them down enough? Do you use a special

You should of replaced those oil seals in the hubs and cleaned the bearings
and the inside of the hubs soaked the bearings in oil before re

I'm not sure what the torque spec is. Thanks for watching!

Author onefatbass ( ago)
Thanks for posting this... just started doing my 04' F-350 DRW and wasn't
quite sure how to get to the rotor. :) I have the same Alcoa wheels that
were on your video... what is the torque spec. for the lug nuts when I'm
done? Many thanks...

Author EdzGarage ( ago)
It's probably pretty close, but I don't know for sure. Thanks for watching!

@kctyphoon I guess you get what you pay for LOL

Author kctyphoon ( ago)
this video would be much better if you actually showed HOW you did
everything,, but still better than nothing,

Author EdzGarage ( ago)
@godofwar09 Yes, if you loose a lot of fluid you need to replace it. That's
why I mentioned you need to bias the truck back to keep from loosing the

Author Alexander Medvedev ( ago)
Here is a question when you undo the bolts and you have to have the special
tool to unscrew it the fluid that drains out is the rear differential fluid
right ? So when new rotors installed it should be filled back up...

@edzgarage ok i have a question i have a 92 f350 7.3L dually diesel and it
has rear drum brakes which i hate and i wanted to know how and if it would
work to swap them out for disk brakes like yours would it be as simple as
just replacing my drum with a disk and hooking the brake line to a caliper
or would much more complicated work go into it if you happen to know or
have and advice that would be great thanks

@mr3vil666 Thanks for the comment!

Author Jared Janhsen ( ago)
On the F250 the brake calipers and bracket are exactly the same. Two 19mm
bolts hold the bracket to the axle and two 14mm bolts hold the caliper to
the bracket. The Dually brake rotors are completely different though. On
the F250 the rotor is only held in place by the caliper and the wheel, no
need to remove the axle shafts or the entire hub (unless you're servicing
bearings). At least your rotors don't weld themselves to the hub with rust

Author EdzGarage ( ago)
@CPUNeck Thanks for the comment! The inner seal was good so I just reused
it. Still holding oil today.

Author Casper TG ( ago)
So what did you do about the hub seal? Spot on for the other stuff.

Author EdzGarage (41 year ago)
@abcmclovin I think you can, but the tire will be offset from the front.

You sir have a new subscriber, excellent video I will check out your other
ones right now. I am a big time Ford guy

Author EdzGarage ( ago)
@dieselinside69 Anything is possible. If your serious, you should look for
a rear axle from a late model to put in yours that has disk brakes.

Author dieselinside69 ( ago)
@cavediver2 i have a 1995 f-350 7.3l dually can i convert my drum brakes
into disk brakes at rear !!!???

Author EdzGarage ( ago)
@cavediver2 No, it just pulls right out. Thanks for the comment!

Author cavediver2 ( ago)
I have to repair the same one on my truck and was wondering was there a
clip inside the punkin that need to come off before you pull the axle.

@rthom86 Thanks for the comment and the 02 info. I bet your boss was happy
to have it all fixed.

Author rthom86 ( ago)
just did this job on my boss's 02 the only thing they changed is that both
calipers are on the rear side of the axle. I went alittle further than you,
found one hub seal leaking so i replaced bearings and seals on both sides.

Author EdzGarage ( ago)
@stydel311 Yep, I'm sure it's rust colored now!

Author EdzGarage ( ago)
@Intelpentium54321 I have never used it. Thanks for the comment.

Author Intelpentium54321 ( ago)
your supposed to use the parking brake...even if it is an automatic.

Author EdzGarage ( ago)
@tj761981 I am not sure how different the axles are between the F250 and
the F350 DRW, but I would think they are different. The front is completely
different because when I bought front rotors they gave me the wrong ones
once and they are completely different. There isn't a spacer, it's all one
casting. Sorry I can't be much help here Tom. -Ed

I would always replace brake calipers in pairs, just my .02, so they apply

Thanks Tom! The truck has been a work horse. We use it to pull our 31'
travel trailer. It has great power and gets pretty good mileage while

Author tom58c ( ago)
Best video ever! lol :) How has this truck been doing? im not a ford guy,
but we had a 2003 f350 4x4 for a while. I got to say... it was the
smoothest most powerful truck we have gotten to drive with a load. It didnt
even have to try with that old 53 chrysler impereal. So fancy inside. You
can imagine my face when i found out what seat warmers were lol. Just too
expensive of a truck though.

Author EdzGarage ( ago)
Thanks! Heavy truck, heavy parts!!!

Author atcklx ( ago)
oh ok, nice job heavy work...

Author EdzGarage ( ago)
I think disk brakes became standard in 1999.

Author atcklx ( ago)
are all the new ones like that when did they stop useing drums?

Author EdzGarage ( ago)
You need to grease the pins. I did not put grease any place else. It could
get on the pads and affect the braking.

Author gmtgmt123 ( ago)
do you put grease where the pads slides?

Author EdzGarage ( ago)
Yea, I forgot just how nice all new brakes felt on this truck. Thanks for
the comment!

Author EdzGarage ( ago)
She sure does stop like new! Thanks for the comment.

Author Chrisgarage1 ( ago)
Now she should stop like new! love the DRW 350's, such beasts! iv got one
sent as my backround picture which is my favorite gen of the 350's

Author 500passwords ( ago)
man , i always fix my own 99 f - 150 . my brakes and rotors are so easy , i
fell sorry for ya. but theres nothing like new rotors , truck feels new
again when it stops good.
