Jack up truck and support safely on stands. Remove wheels and unbolt caliper on one side only. Use a c-clamp and push pistons back being careful not to overfill master cyl with brake fluid. Check rotor for wear and runout. If not worn or damaged clean caliper, instal grease on metal contact surfaces, instal new pads and instal caliper onto mount, torque and pump brake pedal to move new pads into proper position with rotor. Repeat process with other side of truck. Replace rotors if they are worn or you observe run out as brakes will chatter and not work well otherwise. Use high temp grease to butter the back of the pads. Use shims as needed for proper heat disapation. Replace caliper if it is leaking around piston seals. Replace brake hose if it is cracked or leaking. Refil brake master cylinder with fresh fluid to remove water or impurities from the fluid. This is important. Brake fluid doesn't last forever and water contaminates it and boils causing faulty braking aplication. Not good with anti loc brakes. Wear nytril gloves to protect your skin from brake fluid. It can be nasty stuff. Dispose of fluid safely. Ask someone qualified to help you do this job. You need to have the proper tools and training for safety.
