rear disc rotor Q

02/19/2019 00:44
On a 06 Toyota 4runner, there seems to be a pattern of rear disc calipers seizing. That happened to us this week. The weather is yecky, tons of road chemicals. We wash more often. Is that a Toyota issue, or a wide issue we are just getting? Can I gain by the 5th gen upgrade to parts, or just find equivalent and count the months till it re-occurs? Too bad Doc P bowed out? Or was Volvo his brand? Can't wait for winter to break. No sleep keeping up with all the issues thatvgo with snow plow and equipment upkeep.

Salt kills everything under a car that's not painted. If owners knew how much that salt depreciated their cars they'd question why that salt is applied to the road. A truck in my bay now has a seized caliper slide.

do you dismantle and repair, or simply swap the parts? I haven't had much experience on rear disc setups.

Our town has about 5000 12" pot holes. The asphalt streets have so many splits and gravel from crappy pot hole repair machine they look like a early 1900s street. I think my driver wheel started shimmying today. Likely bent the rim, on a 1 ton steel rim.

Often the guide pins are seized and it's faster to replace the assembly. A fast repair can save much labor time, which is also money the customer will be responsible for.
