Default Too Much Correction

I did exactly what you did (lower 1/4 inch) after installation of my 4 inch OME lift.

Yesterday I did some testing on a dirt road (turn off the 7 pin mod switch to disable Antilock Brake System). Turns out I was locking the rears first. Made a couple of slight corrections to get best braking and confirming fronts were locking first. Feels much better. I did not have the twin pressure systems to check the system, so this worked well. Shade tree procedures. Terry

FWIW, I could lock up the 40 just about anywhere... without even trying. Got downright scary a couple times actually

someone was talking about using 100 pads instead of 80 pads to get a little more wear..... Can't remember who it was but Jerry at burt toyota thought Wes had mentioned it.... do they help in stopping power, or was it just a deal where they last longer ?

100 pads for fronts only. Best time is when you change your rotors at the same time

Supposedly both. They are bigger (have to leave the anti-squeal shims out just to get them to squeeze in there) thus they have a different wear pattern on the rotors thus the suggestion that you put on new rotors at the same time.

The 's 80 has new rotors and 80 series pads. The LX has new rotors and 100 series pads. I can't tell a difference between the two stopping power wise which IMO means the 100 series pads must be doing there thing since the LX is bigger and now weighs a heck of a lot more than the 80 . However, if the LX hadn't needed new front rotors I would have just stuck with the 80 series pads until it did.
