Sounds like something I need to pay attention to.


TIA
yeah, all have different procedures for the most part, but they are basically one in the same to me. i always install my pads....drive down the road, get up to about 45...slow to about 10 mph....repeat about 5 or 6 times, then park and let the rotors cool down. never have had any problems.

Used Tacomaman06s instructions and knocked it out in 1 hour. The only reason why it took that long was because one of the pistons wouldn't move in order to fit the new pad into place. After a lot of cussing at it, I finally got it into place. Not bad for never having done breaks before.
