Toyota 4Runner Brake Disc and Pad Kit Customer Reviews

Only giving it 4 stars because I haven't tested the long term durability yet but everything bolted up like it was supposed to. The brakes work great!

Purchased on Jun 21, 2020
The picture is not a representative of the product. I was expecting tan colored ceramic brake pads, but they are black and say ceramic on the box, so I have to trust that's what they are. So far they work 100x's better than stock Toyota rotors/pads.
Purchased on Feb 05, 2016
Installed this kit last weekend and it has made a great improvement in my braking. It was easy to install and really nice to have a kit that is all inclusive of part (springs and brake grease included). For this vehicle, watch out for APW website info - it's not correct.

How to Take Care of Your New Toyota 4Runner Brake Disc and Pad Kit

A new OEM Toyota 4Runner brake disc and pad kit should solve a ton of braking problems in your vehicle, but it can only go so far without some maintenance on your part. Although they are highly durable, the brake discs and brake pads are designed to wear out over time. And whether you will replace your ride's brake discs and pads again next year or in the next 5 years all depends on how you take care of these components.

Do you want your Toyota 4Runner's brake discs and pads to last longer? Here are some maintenance tips to check out:

  • Change and refill the brake fluid periodically.

The hydraulic brake fluid is what transfers the energy from your foot on the brake pedal to the disc brakes, so when it runs low or goes bad, you can certainly expect problems with the brakes. The 4Runner's brake fluid reservoir has indicators to tell you whether the fluid level is low, so refill it once it hits the low mark. Also, check the color and consistency of the brake fluid. Ideally, the brake fluid should have a clear, smooth appearance with a yellowish tinge. If it starts to get an amber color with dark particles at the bottom, the fluid has gone bad and must be replaced.

  • Make sure to use the right kind of brake fluid for your vehicle.

Like most Toyota-made vehicles, the 4Runner runs on silicone-based brake fluid, so make sure that the new fluid is of the correct type before refilling. Also, check the manufacturing date on the container and avoid those that are more than a year old. Brake fluid has the tendency to absorb moisture from the air, which can lead to corrosion inside the brake lines and the calipers.

  • Bed in any new set of brake pads.

"Bedding in" is basically a procedure that optimizes the brake pads for use with your vehicle's disc brakes. There are many ways you can do this, although the most popular form is braking lightly while driving at low speeds for a total of 100 miles. Do this on an empty stretch or road or a large unused parking lot to avoid accidents.

How to Identify and Troubleshoot Common Toyota 4Runner Brake Disc and Pad Kit Problems

The brake discs and brake pads of the Toyota 4Runner are among the parts that are most susceptible to wear, resulting in significant braking performance issues. In many instances, problems with these braking components can be resolved by getting a Toyota 4Runner brake disc and pad kit, but it is important to know first whether your vehicle's brake discs or pads need replacing or you just have to make some adjustments to your brake assembly. To make it easier for you, here are some ways to troubleshoot common problems with Toyota 4Runner brake discs and pads:

Less responsive brakes

If you find yourself pushing the pedal all the way to the floor, it could be due to low brake fluid levels. Check the brake fluid reservoir to see if it is still within the recommended level and refill it as necessary. But if the brake fluid is not the culprit, it may be due to air bubbles trapped in the brake lines. In such cases, you will need to have the brakes bled and replenished with a new batch of brake fluid.

Strange noises from the wheels

Do you hear squealing or grinding noises coming out of your wheels? It most likely caused by worn brake pads. Modern brake pads now have so-called wear indicators that emit a squealing noise once the pads' friction material is almost worn off to the nub. Check the status of the pads and, if the friction material has completely been rubbed away, replace them with a new pair. On the other hand, if the brake pads are fine, another potential source of the problem might be a damaged brake disc. A warped disc or scoured disc surface rubbing against the brake pads unevenly creates noise in the process.

Wheels pull to one side when braking

The wheels should remain steady when braking, so when they involuntarily veer to the left or right whenever you step on the pedal, the brake caliper on the disc may be stuck. Check the brake fluid first, as low fluid levels often cause the caliper to get stuck in the closed or open position. If the brake fluid levels are fine, the brake disc surface may be warped, causing the caliper to get stuck.
