    Good tips. Going to help my mate change pads of his 120 series this will definitely help us. Thanks.

    Changed out the rotors and pads a while ago but forgot to post re the cracks in the rear discs.

    PLEASE check your rear discs for cracks. these ones cracked on the inside edge making it impossible to see with just the wheel off.

    If the steering wobbles under brakes your front rotors are out of line, if the car pulses under brakes the rear discs are out. Mine was pulsing but didn't know they where cracked until i took them off.

    Cracks on the face that follow the casting. This side is not supported like the outside.





    New rotors front and back. DBA T2 slotted.
    Toyota pads used.



    Originals lasted 120000 with plenty remaining. !st replacements lasted until 200000 when i discovered the cracks.

    This needs to be put on your regular maintenance program. Remove the rear discs, check pads and handbrake shoes, clean with brake cleaner or water, NO COMPRESSED AIR, re grease the adjuster nuts and reinstall.

    Thanks

    Thanks for this write up. It gave me the confidence too to do the job. Completed within 2 hrs on a 95 series.

    The Haynes manual was helpful as a guide too.

    I tried this today but for the life of me couldn't get the caliper bolts undone. Ended up breaking my socket wrench.
    Still tossing up whether to just go buy a cordless impact wrench or pay someone to do it.
    The cost to pay someone will likely be the same cost anyway so thinking I just buy the tools and then I have them forever.

    Edit: I got the better of me and I went and bought a cordless Impact Wrench. It took a few goes at it but I got the buggers off. After that the pad change was easy peasy.

    Thank you for the write up. I couldn't see the pics but the instructions were easy to follow.

    Pads were easy to pull out and change and noticed a big difference. Local store had Bendix out on special a few weeks ago so did all 4 corners, done in just under 2 hours.

    Cheers

    Hi,

    I'm up for front brakes again. I can't track down the front caliper bolt torque specs. If anyone has them or the parts diagram that shows the torque spec can you please post it up.

    Possible dumb queston ahead.... why no compressed air Rusty? what's the theory

    Haven't done my own brakes in a couple years (Prado won't need for a while yet) but in the past i'd squirt around with the blow gun. what am i doing wrong?

    cheers
