Pull the tire, remove retaining clip, pull two pins, remove pads, slide in new pads, replace pins and clip. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

Besides removing the tire the only tool you need is a big screwdriver-prybar to push the calipers back.

Yes, I used the anti-squeak stuff <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/patriot.gif" alt="" />

I used 100-Series pads on the front of mine w/ new rotors when I did the front axle service recently - whoa! Very substantial difference!

100 series pads are something I haven't tried yet. When I did mine I regrettably went with 80 series pads, but I did notice a huge difference between the OEM pads and the not quite worn out aftermarket pads the PO put on there.

Either of you guys experiencing the sluggish 80 series brake pedal?

Yup, same setup on 96+ 4Runners and Tacomas, and all Tundras. Sequoias too I think.

That does sound easy although I'm not complaining since the Mitsu's aren't exactly hard either. Need a socket wrench (14mm?) and a big c-clamp (to compress piston) for my gen I. Hope the Gen II's the same. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

14mm is correct. Gen2 is just as easy as the front of the gen1. I just put pads on my 95 rear axle on my gen1 yesterday.


I just want to tell you both good luck, and we're all counting on you.

Good to know.

Hey Les, how exactly does this retainer system work on the LC brakes? That's a 100 not an 80 LC right?

We usta call those Ate' pattern calipers, usually with two pistons. My opels had those. Two pins with a spring clip hooked on them than hold the pads in the caliper. The caliper did not float like a mitsu. IIRC, we called the mitsu type "girlings". Both are brand names, like brembo.

Les has an 80series just like Brian, which you can put 100 pads in.

When you say 100 series what do you mean? I have a landcruiser and am curious?
