    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

    Dang it just finished doing the fronts (85k) Three other yota site and videos said 137 lb-ft...!!!! Aaaaargh..!!!!!:annoyed::frustrated:
    man...I was about to chuck my HF torque wrench !!!
    I went up incrementally and got a click at 100, 110 and 115 lb-ft and got more nut flat turn above trying to get to 120 and said screw it! tight enough......
    Now I see 91 lb-ft....... well good thing I place a few tooth pick dabs of copper anti-seize on threads

    Anyone really think they need to be unbolted and retorqued to 91??? and does anyone add a dab of blue thread lock?
    I used the copper anti-seize due to as found condition of corrosion.

    wed. morning heading to NAPA for rear pads only.
    I'll keep an eye on this thread and check on it in the morning before heading to NAPA for the rear pads.

    The fronts were done with OEM rotors and pads from local dealer, but they are 45 minutes away.
    So for the rear pads not gonna get OCD.

    You are fine. I still know guys using impacts to tighten that shit.

    No thread lock.

    Also I use anti seize on the back of the pads and the grooves they slide in to prevent squeaking. Not sure if it does but thats how I was taught so I keep doing it.
