Best Answer

YOU ONLY BLEED BRAKES WHEN YOU DISCONECT ANY BRAKE LINES OR HOSES OR IF YOU CHANGING YOUR ENTIRE FLUID. IF YOU JUST CHANGE PADS AND OR SHOES YOU DO NOT NEED TO BLEED IT. JUST MAKE SURE THAT WHEN YOU PUSH THE PISTON BACK ON YOUR CALIPERS, THE RESERVOIR CAP MUST BE OFF TO AVOID DAMAGING ANY COMPONENTS.

Is changing front and rear brakes on an ABS Chevrolet Cavalier the same?

every cavalier (unless modified) has rear drum brakes and front disk brakes. Wether it has ABS or not doens't effect the changing of the brakes, it needs front pads and rotors, and back needs drums and shoes... so the front is different from the back You should disconnect the battery cable as a safety procedure so the ABS will not try to work when you are working with the brakes. Just be aware that in some GM you will need a password to unlock the radio, so be cautious about it. Good luck.
