I once started to check the front pads and broke all the front lugs loose before jacking. After finding very little wear on one side, I decided not to bother with the other side at all. You just KNOW where this is going!

My son called my at work from a pay phone to tell me that he was leaving the car at the curb about 2 miles from home because it was making a funny noise from the front end.

Now I have a sign over my workbench that says "RETORQUE". I do it when I return from the first trip after any work that required wheel removal and again after about 100 miles.

Enjoy the BBQ - wish we were there (there's about 4" of snow and ice on my drive this morning).
