    Does the fj60 '82 use the same brake pads for Front and Rear?

    No. The rear brakes are drum type and the front are disk (disc?). Unless you have a rear disc setup, then I have no idea.

    Thanks for the reply. I read something about having to replace all pads simultaneously. Do you know if there is anything that needs to be done for the rear, since I have just done all four front pads?

    Best is to take off your rear brake drums and have a look inside. Should be no brake fluid leads from the cyclinder, and the pads should be thicker than the minimum (2mm I think). Rears last a lot longer than the fronts though.

    Usually your front pads consume more fast than rear pads .. in 60 series ..
