    Hi all, just got finished with the front brake job and thought I better check on this. The pads were Toyota 04465-AZ001-TM which I was told were the correct ones. But the pad is actually shorter than what I took out. See photo. Is this correct? Makes me think I won't get as much stopping power.
    I also have a stuck piston on the inner side of the caliper. How easy is it to free up? Do I need a new caliper or is it recommended to just repair?
    Thanks for the help.
    Paul

    So are you saying that I put the wrong pads in? I gave the dealer my VIN number.
