It seems now a days that everyone loves to turn rotors, the only reason to turn a rotor is if it is running out, what this means is that
it is moving back and forth and not in a straight line. What a brake tec is suppose to do is place a dial caliper on the rotor and spin it and see if it is running out,if it is then it must be turned,as long as the rotor is not under the mfg min width. Any vibration,pulsing,shudder,
would tell me that it needs to be turned, just wanted to explain the reason behind it. Any other questions please post back as everyone is more than happy to help.

Hello, one "trick" is to grab a big hammer and hit the face of the rotor (the part that goes on the hub between the lug studs, NOT the brake pads ride on) several times. A lot of the vehicles I have done this with you really have to whack between the lugs pretty hard and a lot of times. Just make sure you don't hit the lug studs.

SOURCE: shaking while braking
I DON'T KNOW IF THIS WILL HELP BUT NARROW IT DOWN,WHEN BRAKING WHAT SHAKES,STEERING WHEEL SHAKES BACK AND FORTH IT WOULD BE A FRONT BRAKE ISSUE,MAKE SURE CALIPER HARDWARE IS OK,AND CALIPER SLIDE PINS ARE FREED UP,IF THE WHOLE CAR SHAKES IT'S THE REAR BRAKES,PINS SLIDER AND HARDWARE ON REAR ALSO,HOPE THIS HELPS

I have a 2006 Sequoia which should have the similar if not the exact same brake system. Changing the pad is very easy and straight forward. No special wrenth was involved. Easier than sedans since no worry to damage the brake fluid pipe.

SOURCE: changed frt and rear brake
The piston must be rotated as it is pushed into the caliper. There is a special tool for this that is sold at just about all parts houses. The tool looks like a small square with various pins for various applications that goes on the end of your 3/8 drive ratchet.
