    I have a 2007 toyota tacoma 4x2 access cab with the 2.7.
    I need to know if the calipers are the dual/4-6 piston type or single. Reason is because before I change the pads and possibly the rotors I need to know if I need a special dual piston spreader tool.
    maybe ill get lucky and not have a deep groove in the rotors and be able to change the pads with out removing the calipers.

    Thankyou gentleman.
    If any of u need ac/heat help dont hesitate to ask.

    Thankyou for your time:D

    ^^What he said, you need to remove them. I've never used a special tool for spreading the pistons though, usually just use leverage from whatever tool I can fit between the pistons.

    Same here. I've used a small piece of steel and channel locks to compress them before. Just watch the reservoir level.
