    ^You're welcome to help out with the parking brake service lol. If you thought drum brakes were complicated, the 4Runner's parking brakes are next-level evil! The button springs holding the shoes to the backing plate need to be accessed through a little hole in the hub flange, about as easy as laparoscopic surgery...

    Everything replaced - shoes, levers, springs, all hardware... only to discover the rotor doesn't fit? Looks like the Bosch parking brake shoes are oversized. :facepalm:

    On a positive note, the flare nut to the brake hose loosened without drama. Should be easy to replace the hose and caliper tomorrow.

    My buddy has been struggling with rear disk brakes on his FJ. All the non-OEM pads seem to be made thicker, and cause the caliper to drag on the rotor. He failed with two sets of aftermarket pads, one was HD, one was supposed to be OEM equivalent.

    Couple of co workers changed the plan. Camping Thursday night to Friday. Going up Thursday noon. And yes I do believe it costs to camp there.
    Don't mind paying for a site supporting local businesses.

    I lucked out with Bosch BC606 ceramic pads in a new Raybestos FRC10463N caliper on a Raybestos 980780PER slotted rotor.
    Replaced the brake hose, too, because rust. Sunsong 2204834 hose and Carlson H95042 banjo bolt.
    Took it for a test drive. No more dragging caliper. Parking brake now works properly, too, with original OEM shoes freshly lubricated and adjusted.

    AL9nZEXj_vshAr5vrZTXhGFT6bSEam8mWTJgb9PH_98259f1beffba3d0341e2dc487677368c2b1f118.jpg AL9nZEV_CZ8sBWAsnQVCPiumvPbXwCrsnaEyuXFP_12bcafde0b1f6f3dfbacb2c9699c8dccc0708239.jpg
    Disc brakes with the parking brake integrated into the caliper (like Hondas) would've been fine. Shoes inside the rotor hat increase the labor tremendously. I knew I was in for a rough time when I saw the S-shaped nails in the hardware kit, but this still kicked my ass.

    PSA: If you have a 5th gen 4Runner, avoid Bosch parking brake shoes.
