    Hi guys my name is Derek
    I was wondering if anyone here has a DIY on a front brake pad change.
    I have a 2007 Toyota Tacoma Double cab Prerunner 4x2.
    I know the basics but a step by step guide would be really helpful, also knowing all the torque settings for the bolts would be great.

    Thanks in advance :wave:

    Buy a chiltons or Haynes if you plan on working on your truck!! Great Resource!

    I have not yet done it but I have never had a disc job that was hard.
    Drums are a PITA if you don't have the right tools

    I can't seem to find any of the Chiltons or Haynes manuals for our trucks. Can somebody give me a good link for it?
