Brake shims on the Toyota Camry are designed to enable a smooth relationship between the brake pads and the vehicle’s rotors. The shims even out the inconsistencies on the surface of the rotor to allow the brake pads to make solid contact during braking. Inspect the rotors and brake calipers while performing the brake pad shim replacement to ensure that there are not other contributors to degraded brake performance or rattling of the brake pads.
Tools Used: Tools, Lug wrench, 13 mm wrench, Jack, Jack stands, Flat screwdriver, Wire brush, Brake grease
