      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Chevy Colorado Brakes???

Recommended Posts

Just had the front brakes done and couldn't believe the bill, 4.5 hours to change the front pads and rotors. Is that crazy or is there more involved in it? I've had the truck for about 2 years now and every time I turn around it seems like something is going on it and it cost an arm and a leg because they did some crazy out of wack stuff with everything.

It looks like book time is 4.1 to replace rotors. I havent done them before so I dont know why they are that high.

I just looked up the rnr procedure and it looks to be the same as the Honda ones. They have you remove the knuckle and press the rotor off. Nice desiegn!!! crazy

Those are indeed non knock off rotors. First the knuckle is removed. Then you can remove the bolts for the hub/bearing, then the bolts for the rotor then you can remove the rotor. It is almost exactly like the setup that Honda had.

Where the brakes grinding or shaking bad?

I wonder why they could not "on car lathe" turn the rotors and put new pads in?

Factory rotor's usually seem to have some good meat on them and unless you do not have the brakes checked, they grind to the point of under spec, rust pitted deep or are warped to the hilt where turning them is not an option, I think they could have saved them.

I might not be privy to an issue with these rotors. You might have also had them turned in the past, depending on how many miles the rig has on it.

This would be an option I would ask about, before replacing the rotors.

There are not a whole lot of GM rotors that come with enough meat to turn anymore! If I remember right the we just did not that long ago required rotors with its first brake service.
