So there is the option for the teves or akebono on these jeeps…what I am assuming is the teves have the wire that has to be detached as shown in this video, correct? I’d like to verify before I purchase the wrong parts and have to return the parts. Any help that you could provide to me would be great, thanks.

Very good video overall. May I suggest #1) use a breaker bar to loosen and remove lug nuts, always pushing DOWN on bar instead of pulling UP . Pulling UP compresses your spine and can aggravate or injure folks, especially us older grease monkeys. #2) we usually do not replace brake pads without regrinding brake rotors first, but overall a VERY good video. Oh and nitrile gloves are a great way to protect hands from solvents ect. Thanks!! T.N.
