the brakes on my 2004 4runner seem to go way low to the floor..any idea why this is as i see a few others asking about it..I have had the pads replaced and i am at 70k, but wondering if you had anything come to mind as it scares me and it feels mushy and not real reliable..i am used to a pedal that comes higher up, this one is almost on the floor..thank you kelly

I used to have a 1999 4Runner Limited 4WD that I had to replace the rotors/pads every 5-10k miles. I was told by the toyota dealership that if I do not clean the rear drums then more braking happens in the front rotors, thereafter the warping of rotors... long story short, I did some investigation and found out that the issue was with the over torque when I had the tires rotated. In conclusion, be careful when you rotate the tires and always ask for precise torque setting.

did you replace the rotors? sounds like you may have air in your system. try bleeding the brakes it may help
#12 of 12 power brake assist

i believe i need to replace my power brake assist. my 95 4runner has rear anti-lock brakes. can i replace the power assist with one that does not have rear anti-lock brakes? Quite a bit of price difference and I really do not care if it has rear antilock or not.
