Labor probably sucks but
not too expensive for the price

I wonder if I have 2 evaporator cores in the car and that's why the front gets super cold when I run the rear blower motor.

Well, one night a couple of weeks ago I had a fun experience in the behemoth.
We load up the kayak...head down to Miami. I park in a restaurant and when I
go move the truck to a closer spot so the kayak is still on top of it when we get done
I hit the brakes and go halfway into the street almost taking out a lady walking.

If I press HARD I can get it to stop but needless to say getting it home is sketchy. I have
hydroboost for brake booster and that looks intact, nothing obvious although I did see
that the master eventually ended up empty. Upon inspection I see that the rear caliper is
almost completely off the disc and missing a piston. Turns out previous owner's mechanic
used antiseize grease instead of loctite that the slide pins call for. WTF...
Anyway, on the way out the piston hurt the back of the pad and it looked like they could be
changed and American parts are cheap so...$106 later I have a full set of Delco Ceramics
and a brand new Pro Delco Caliper...

Therapeutic work!

Damn that is sketchy. I know the feeling of having a GM truck with no breaks.

Genius shit, boys...
I actually love those olddddd trucks.
If I could go back in time to before buying this one...I would have looked for a very clean example of the previous generation one.
