      Review & Installation Video

      Hey, guys. It's Sara with americantrucks.com and today, we have a review and install of the Baer Sport Drilled and Slotted Rotors, front pair, fitting your '07 through '18 Chevy Silverado 1500. These are perfect for the Silverado owner who's looking for the additional stopping power and performance, and wants a rotor that is both drilled and slotted. These are ideal for the daily driver who wants to upgrade the stopping power of their truck. Maybe you have larger wheels and tires like we do or you just want a little extra stopping power, these will do the trick while keeping your brakes cool and clean. This kit consists of two front one-piece, drilled and slotted, zinc-plated cast steel rotors that feature a vented design that's going to keep your brakes cool and clean.So as far as price goes, these come in at around $250 which is a bit more than some other budget options. And for your money, you're getting a drilled and slotted rotor from a trusted name in braking. I'm giving this install a two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. They feature a direct bolt-up installation, same as any brake job and can be done within three hours. So with that said, let's jump into our install.For this install, you will need an impact gun or a ratchet, a T30 Torx socket, 18 and 19-millimeter sockets, a caliper hanger or something to hold your caliper, and a caliper tool.All right, so the first step for our own install is to grab a 19-millimeter socket. We're gonna take off the two bolts that hold the caliper to the bracket. All right, so we're gonna take these two 19-millimeter bolts out at the back of our caliper and you want to have a caliper hanger tool or a bungee cord on deck as soon as the caliper comes off.Now, if these bolts do spin on the back here, you can grab a skinny wrench and just hold the slider parts still. But ours seem to come out easily. All right, now that the bolts are out, you may have to wiggle the caliper free. If not, you can pry back on the inside right here. Well, once it's free, grab your hanger and hang your caliper out of the way. Be careful not to put any tension on the brake line. Now, at this point, you can grab an 18-millimeter, and we're gonna remove the two bolts that hold the caliper bracket to your knuckle.Just keep a hand on it when you're pulling this second bolt out because it's definitely gonna want to come off at this point. And just pull it off, pads and all. All right, so at this point, we're gonna remove this T30 Torx bolt that holds on our rotor. Before we do that, I like to just put one of the lug nuts on, just in case for safety, so the rotor doesn't accidentally come off. So using a T30 Torx socket, we're gonna remove bolt. Okay, you can remove the rotor off of your truck. All right, so now that we have the factory rotor uninstalled from our truck, we can check it out side by side with our Baer rotor. And, as I said before, the biggest difference here is that this one is drilled and slotted, which is gonna function a whole lot better, especially when compared to a worn out factory rotor.The slots in here are gonna keep your brakes cool and clean and function a whole lot better than an OE replacement would. All right, so now we can install the rotor. These are directional because they're drilled and slotted, so you want to make sure you're grabbing the proper side. They should be labeled "Left" and "Right," so grab the one that is labeled "Left" and let's get it installed.Hold your rotor in place, and we're gonna reinstall the bolt. With your T30 Torx socket, tighten this down. All right, so with the rotor in place, we can now install the caliper bracket with your brake pads. Now, we are gonna reinstall the old brake pads and you can definitely do that, but while you have these all apart, you might want to take a look and if it's time for pads, replace them now. Line it up with the holes on your knuckle and grab your factory bolts, and let's get them reinstalled.Go ahead and install the bolts that hold your caliper bracket to the knuckle. Grab your 18-millimeter socket and tighten these down. All right, so now we're gonna unhang our caliper and get it re-installed. Since we didn't replace our brake pads, we can just install it as is, but to make it a little bit easier, you can press in the pistons a little bit and if you did replace your brake pads, you definitely need to do this.So grab a caliper tool. You can use a C-clamp if you don't have one, but this does make it a whole lot easier. And just press in both the pistons, just enough to clear the brake pads. Now, if you do this, you're definitely gonna want to pump your brakes and you should, anyway, once everything is installed. Line up your caliper over top of the brake pads and wiggle it into place.Grab your factory hardware and get it reinstalled. Using your 19-millimeter socket, tighten it down.All right, so now, you're gonna repeat that process on the other side. You also want to hit this brake rotor with a little bit of brake clean just to clean off the oils that come from the factory. And especially if you press in the pistons on your caliper, you want to pump your brakes just to make sure they're functioning properly before you drive anywhere.But that is gonna do it for the review and install of these brake rotors. And remember, for all things Silverado, keep it at americantrucks.com.
