    Is this upgrade front only?

    I see some posts referring to rear pads. Do they mean rear ‘shoes’ or can the rear brakes be converted from drum to disk?

    I think that you meant to say that the bigger 14 WA calipers require the larger 17" wheels.

    It's a typo or lost in translation, shoe vs. pad. Don't take it literally. Some comments for you on your question...

    Thanks for helping mill the ears on my OEM calipers and being a great resource. It's been a few months and no regrets!

    Does anyone know the torque specs for the 14mm and 17mm bolts that hold the caliper together? My local machine shop needs me to halve the calipers.

    Hey Geoff, new here, but I've read a lot of your posts and you seem to be an awesome resource! I'd like to do the 14WA front caliper upgrade on my 05 Sequoia, do you still offer the machined front calipers or could I send you a set to machine? If not, can you point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance!

    I do - but it can be a rabbit hole. 13WE, 13WL to start makes a difference it seems. Search the brake upgrades, not all have gone as planned.

    I’m on 13WL cause I like even number wheel sizes. No complaints. Jason, my mechanic, said he didn’t like the brakes for a few months and finally realized he had to bleed the prop valve to get the lines fully clear. I’m sure everyone else knows that but just something to be extra aware of both for replacing and for maximizing performance of what you have.

    Yeah, you have to bleed that thing. I think I'm gonna eliminate it. I bent the crap out of my rod from the axle housing and no real change. I do like the idea of less lines to push when you are trying to maximize pressure. One less brake line from the MC to the rear? Hmmm.

    It's no big deal. There's only one seal for the fluid to pass from inside to outside. Otherwise its just clamped together with the bolts.

    Best I've got. Never took one with them laying on the bench separated.

    Seems like they're selling these again at Agility. I just got a set in today. I'm going through and ordering the rest of the stuff I need but want to make sure I get the right items.
    I was going to go with 2015 4-runner rotors and pads from McGeorge Toyota or Olathe. I would like to get factory rotors and pads for now at least. Can anyone confirm that these are all interchangable?
