    Just picked up a 2022 4Runner TRD Pro. I know I can read the old boring manual, but I would rather there be a thread I can find here like for forums of my other vehicles with all the common maintenance info like common torque specs, fluids, etc. I am coming up short on my search.

    Rotors/Calipers/ Breaks-
    12mm
    17mm
    19mm

    Front brakes - every 5k or 6 mo for visual; every 30k or 36 mo for measurements

    Torque specs:
    Brake caliper mounting bolts - 91 lb-ft (19mm)

    Tips:
    1) Measure runout 10 mm from outer edge of rotor; rotor should be installed with all 6 lug nuts torqued to 82 lb-ft when checking
    2) If runout > max, check bearing play and axle hub runout normal before replacing rotors
    3) If rotor stuck on hub, use an M8-1.25 bolt in holes on rotors to break it free
    4) Install new rotors in position with least amount of runout


    Rear brakes - every 5k or 6 mo for visual; every 30k or 36 mo for measurements

    Torque specs:
    Brake caliper mounting bolts: 74 lb-ft (17mm)
    Brake caliper slide pins: 65 lb-ft (17mm)

    Tips:
    1) Measure runout 10 mm from outer edge of rotor; rotor should be installed with all 6 lug nuts torqued to 82 lb-ft when checking
    2) If runout > max, check rear axle shaft before adusting/replacing rotors
    3) If rotor stuck on hub, use an M8-1.25 bolt in holes on rotors to break it free
    4) Install new rotors in position with least amount of runout

    Breaklines
    10mm

    Torque specs:
    Bleeder valve - 11 N-m/8 lb-ft (Front - 10mm deep; Rear - 10mm short)

    Tools:
    I like this bottle, but don't rely on the magnet, set it on something

    Tips:
    1) Make note of initial brake fluid level
    2) Don't let reservoir get low which would let air in system
    3) Sequence is FR, FL, RR, RL
    4) Ignition switch has to be in ON for both front and rear
    5) Fronts require cycling the brakes repeatedly to flush fluid (depress/loosen/tighten/release/repeat)
    6) Press and hold brake on rears and allow pump to push fluid continuously
    7) If bleeding air (and not just replacing), the FSM states that Techstream is required
    8) Leave brake fluid level same as initial level
    9) Will want a 10mm open-end wrench or 10mm offset wrench for the fronts due to the angle
