    Once my friends were trying to put a tow hitch receiver on their Lexus lease... While drinking in the middle of a BBQ. Jacked up the rear of the SUV, positioned jack stands, getting ready to install, when they realized they had the wrong part. Ok no big deal, try again next time. Lowered the Lexus from the jack only to realize they left a stand under it. They were amazingly lucky, if the stand was two inches over it would have gone right through the floor of the vehicle and would've been sticking up through the spare tire well.

    Haven't drank in many years myself, but to be fair to the OP he's in Beirut. Were I there I'd likely be hitting it on a daily basis.

    Ok, that's what I thought. It was either 1 of the following: 1. OP is still drunk as a skunk 2. He time warped Or #3. He just has bad sentence structure. lol

    As long as you filled your transmission back up with engine oil you should be fine.

    Stock wheels and suspension. Random "utilitarian" mods featured on this great forum.

    Yeah a few bevs can really motivate me to do random work on things, unfortunately I usually F something up. So I’ve learned to resist the urge.

    No I didn’t damage rotor or pads, however it was on a car and in the rear so nothing like the front brakes on the Tacoma. I’d just check for gouging in the rotor, the pad should be fine.

    Installed a pad backwards. Change that before you take that into the mechanic. However you still got to do the walk of shame.
