Now, you have to remove the bridge to get pads in or out. This requires using an Allen key. But how much easier is removing a few small bolts with an Allen key in comparison to having to take the top of a caliper off to yank pads? This is heaven!
You can also make out the bleeder at the top of the caliper. Yes, it is theoretically possible to install the calipers upside-down. If the bleeder is on the bottom, you done did it wrong. There is a bleeder on each side of the caliper, and you will need to bleed both sides of the caliper at every corner.
That was it for the front brakes! Now, time for the rear brakes. Things are mostly the same back there.
The ABS sensor is reinstalled into the hub and the caliper bracket is attached, too.
But don’t be fooled. It’s mostly because of the integrated brake shoe that Toyota used for the emergency brake. The StopTech rotor, while not a great deal larger in diameter, is still going to be a huge upgrade in terms of heat capacity and overall brake torque.
