Yesterday my brake parts arrived for the Sequoia. Just last week I replaced the front and yesterday I did the rear. Normally I wouldn't share something so boring, especially for my tow vehicle, except this wasn't your normal boring brake job. A rather strange discovery was made.
Now I knew my brakes were getting low based off the metal grinding noise that was continuously getting worse and more and more creepy, I just didn't realize they were getting this low. After removing the driverside caliper I made a discovery, one of the brake pads had gone missing. Just wasn't there, all that remained was a mangled up bit of metal that you stick on the back off the pad to reduce brake noise.
Here's a closer look at the worn down pad and how nasty this rotor was when I pull it off and got a good look at the backside.
