I want to get the brake fluid flushed and the brakes inspected on our 99 suburban 4x4, and preferably on the weekend. And preferably tomorrow since I have nothing to do. The only place it seems I can likely get in tomorrow is a small local chain tire shop that works on brakes and other simple stuff too. If I want to take some time off work I can take it somewhere during the week, but really I'd rather not. I don't really want to do it myself b/c I don't have jackstands rated above 2 tons and frankly, I'm lazy when it comes to that behemoth. The truck has full floating rear axles so from what I can tell getting the rear drums off is a little more involved than it was on my old Tercel :) I don't know though, since I've never taken the brakes off that kind of setup before. Is this laziness to a detriment or should I just take it in to the weekend place? EDIT: Or, I suppose, should I just quit being lazy, get some beefier jack stands, and do it myself?
