I'm cleaning my tools after reassembling the rear brake system on my F350 - finishing yesterday afternoon. I think I had enough tools out to do a major overhaul (oops, I guess I did)

1 axle worth of Hawk LTS brakes
1 spindle nut socket - new
2 backing plates
2 sets of parking brake hardware
2 inner hub seals
2 rotors
2 calipers
1 inner hub bearing
1 quart Valvoline DOT 3/4 synthetic brake fluid
Many words not repeatable in mixed company

Those rotors(33# ea), hubs(12"), calipers(17#), axles(20#) and 18" wheel/tire combos(85#) are freaking heavy and my back is aching and my wallet is much thinner
