you can watch and pause that one as needed...cheaty--mcgreedy took out the most pissy parts...like using that spring tool that he wasn't using properly...couldn't figure out the spring holder end, but the springer putter backer on-ner with a tooth that you can grip onto the stud...he did not make that use clear either....I give this one a four....least he got the job done...albeit self-editing~

I did this in 1996 Dodge, Ford, and GM are all the same this way...Ford Courier mazda pickups have two wheel cylinders each side 8 brake cylinders per vehicle....boy, they sure got that one figured out~
