2001 Toyota Tundra V8 All Wheel Drive Automatic 140000 miles
Hey guys, im looking into replacing my own brake pads. I already checked my rotors. They couldn't be smoother. So they are okay. I'm curious, is there just 1 type of break pad for a 01 tundra, or can their be different kinds. I've been told i'll have to go in and match them up. Also the caliper is stock.
On the subject of actually changing the pads
Items i'll need:
2 jack stands
wrench, ratchet set
possibly c clamp and some wood.
I've been told this is how its done:
1: Get the car on jack stands, remove the tire.
2: Remove the caliper bolts and remove it, hang up it.
3: Take out brake pads and remove guides
4: replace brake pads and guides, grease the guides.
? Im not sure if iw ill need to c clamp down the piston. Any information on that would be great.
5: put back the caliper, secure it
6: bleed brakes, will I need to do that?
also the truck is 2wd, and can switch to 4hi, and 4lo
Thanks guys, any help advice is great!L
