1 hour and 47 minutes. 20 minutes messing with a new floor jack that was to short. One of the easiest car repairs on the LC. 1/2 a banana job. I need a floor jack that will be tall enough. Any recommendations?

thought they would be harder than that before I did mine. Did you flush the system?

Front pads are easy, but the rotors are a PITA because you have to re-pack the wheel bearings every time you take them off. I'm assuming Toyota intended for this so you're basically forced to re-grease them every time. Rear rotors are a snap.

Best investment was good jacks. No more bottle jacks,concrete blocks and wood boards added togeather. I went American made jacks, Hein-Werner. Great jacks. MIke

I believe that Northern Tool has the Arcon jack on sale currently.
Price is $109. Very good jack.

I have the "standard" Harbor Freight one. That isn't necessarily enough for the front end all the time, so I just add the little bottle-jack adapter into the lift tray and that takes care of it.
