    Brake Help

    Hi all, I been having problems with my brakes. Long story short, rears don't seem to be working at all, drivers front is taking much more abuse than passenger. I have 4 runner front calipers and a t-100 master cylinder. I have adjusted the rears and while the parking brake works ok, no luck...

    Brake Booster Rod Adjustment

    Hey all, I just installed a new brake booster. I measured the new booster's rod and it was about .05" shorter than the old booster. I tried adjusting it, but I couldn't get the adjuster to move when I tried turning it. I assume the nut on the end of the rod is what is supposed to rotate? I went...

    Method(s) to check brake rotor runout without a dial gauge

    I need to check front brake rotor runout to see if one of them is warped too much. I don't have a dial gauge. My empirical mind tells me to take each rotor off in turn and put it on the stone kitchen benchtop which is measuribly 'flat' and check that way. Reason I want to do it is that when I...

    Wheel Bearing quality survey - chime in now!

    Hi Mudders, Looking for your experiences with wheel bearing replacement and how well they held up. I'm personally reluctant to buy China for fear of failure like I've seen in friend's vehicles. I'm hearing some major brands (SKF, Timkin) are manufacturing in China so I'm wondering if the...

    ABS, VSC, A TRAC, and Brake dash lights ON

    I just recently got one of my cruisers running after two months of down time. I replaced the sunroof track cables, and exhaust manifold gaskets. I was in no hurry to fix it because no one likes doing manifold gaskets. Either way I got it put back together and running again. I noticed now...

    Wanna do a brake refresh (pads, shoes, bell cranks), what do I need?

    Title pretty much says it all. My brakes are working okay except for a slight pull on hard braking, and the usual rusty/muddy bell crank problems with the handbrake, but I'd like the peace of mind from replacing all the wear components and cleaning everything before I go on some big-ish road...
