How to Install the Rear Rotors on a Toyota Land Cruiser

40

You have to make sure that the brake rotors on your Toyota Land Cruiser stay in good condition. There should be no grooves on the surfaces and no warping. A brake rotor could warp if it gets very hot and then go through a puddle of cold water. Not cleaning the wheel hub properly when you service the brakes can cause “run-out,” another sort of warping. If you take the rotor off for any reason, you need to clean the wheel hub thoroughly with a wire brush.
