    I have a 1995 Toyota Camry and have just had the shocks replaced but now it looks as if my front bumper is almost on the ground. How high is it supposed to be from the ground.

Raise the vehicle up and remove the rims & tires

Remove the brake pads, and then remove the calipers from the caliper retention brackets, do NOT remove the brake hoses from the calipers.

Remove the caliper retaining brackets from the hub assemblies (2 large bolts on backside of the bracket)

Tap the brake rotors off of the hubs, hit them from the back side of the rotor.

No big mysteries here, this is a very easy job.

While trying to change my pads i noticed my rotors seem loose, also i cant get the brakes to stop grinding, squealing after reassembly.

Shane, rotors may seem loose until wheel is on car and torqued to specification, I recommend you take car in for your brakes to be inspected, estimate and repaired at a good shop. Arrange your appointment time so you can be there and watch how it is done and learn from it. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

VSC error camry

Your pressure is air.. Try bleeding again then clear the codes with obd code reader.. The thing is that the brakes have nothing to do with the rotors and should have never been bled... Good luck...

I hear a loud scaping noise from my 2005 Toyota camry when i press on the brakes.

Sounds like the brake pads may be worn out in the front. Make sure that there is not metal to metal contact that may score the rotors. Also, check the shoes and drums for the rear brakes if so equipped.

If you need instructions on how to disassemble, let me know.

When I step on the brakes, you can feel a pulsating in the front end.

What you have is warped brake rotors. I would recommend having the rotors turned or replaced depending on thickness (don't for get to grease the slides for the brake pads).

How do i change the brakes and rotors on my 2004

When you say fit properly I assume you mean it's not going back together. Make sure you have the bearings and races installed correctly on the back side and that you are installing the correct rotor on the correct side with the correct bearings. The front and rear bearings look the same but they aren't and if you try putting that rotor on with the front side bearing installed in the rear of the rotor it will never go back together.

Why are the front brakes of a camry 97 rubbing?

because you didnt clean/lubricate the pistons before you replaced the pads they are not able to move back enough to clear the rotors when driving,they should settle down with wear.....( copperslip/anti squeel grease.)

My brakes squeak in my toyota camry. How do I get

I am assuming you already changed the brake pads. Make sure that the backing plate is on the backside of the pads it wouldnt hurt to put some disc brake quiet (spray) on the backside of the pads. also make sure all of your caliper shims are in place and not rubbing on the rotor. Make sure rotors have been resurfaced or replaced if they are too thin. any imperfections will cause vibration which will cause noise. Some cheap brake pads will squeek no matter what you do. in this case I recomend ceramic brake pads the best price I have found is at pep boys this type of brake pad is superior and very quiet, stays cooler, less brake dust on rims and much better braking. I use pep boys ceramic pads on my customers cars and have had no complaints from them. where with cheaper quality pads it is hit and miss that is why i tell my customers up front if they want the cheaper pads they should expect some noise from time to time and not to be alarmed. It doesnt mean anything is wrong just too much vibration and heat while braking

2001 toyota camry

it seems like the caliber is not completley seated on the rotor or has vibrated loose causeing them to move up.
i would take you vehicle back to who done your brake and have them look at them again and see what they are hanging like that. if you get into an accident because of them would not be good.
