I replaced my rear tire, it was PIA to put back on. The rear brake pads kept falling out and I couldn't get the abs plate and caliper to slide together. I had to call a buddy to help me. Please tell me another way or something to make it easier, some tips maybe. I can't spend 1.5 hrs just putting rear tire on again.

I always spread the pads out a bit extra and it helps a bit. Just gotta remember to pump em back up before ya take off. But mines a 04 so no idea what's different.

WOW he makes it look simple as changing a light bulb.
I don't have the pit bull ramp, but will definitely invest in one. I tried to do that and that's what knocked the brake calipers out and were hanging down and couldn't get them to say in place. Then the wheel speed sensor came apart from the caliper. All the things went wrong at once!
