Well, the first thing that comes to mind, is to be careful of how you stop and accelerate in your vehicle. Take off slowly, and stop with plenty of room and without slamming on the breaks. No quick stops or take offs.

Being with that in mind, it might be time to have your front and rear end re-aligned. Which can usually be down at your local tire or brake service store.

Your other options are worn out Brake Calipers or faulty suspension.

6 months ago i replaced brakes on 2006 toyota carolla the driver side brake pads were faulty the toyota dealer said he has to change all pads, why do all the pads need changed?


you need a class in brakes. It's Brakes not bumper chrome.....
first of all ,
you do replace brakes by AXLE.
that is because, they both wear out at the same time!!!
and mixing brands of brakes left and right side (max dangerous, wow!)
and if you replace one bad set, say left. the right will fail soon.
so that means 2 times the costs. and more down time.
and 2 times constant pad checking, (and paranoia added, justified)
all this make senses.?
the rears will last 2 times front, so some folks do replace them only when near low end.

1996 toyota camary load rear end noise when apply brakes


The most common cause is that the brake pads are worn, causing the audible wear indicator to sound a squealing or scraping sound.

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.)

Toyota Camry 2005-Brake pads noise problem


The rear brakes should last from 30000 to 60000 miles or 50000 to 100000 kms. So something is wearing out your brakes too fast. Are you doing the work or some shop. I also assume you have discs and not drums since you mention pads and calipers. I am not certain but usually you need a tool to turn the pistion in when putting in new pads. I would make sure the pads are releasing properly by raising rear of car, stepping on brakes a few times (with engine off and try see if wheels are free by spinning by hand, also try to use handbrake a few times and release it and see if wheels spin freely. Maybe rears always applied. Notice burning smell, are discs glazed from heat? Are you using really cheap pads. Also check the proportioning valve which will decrease pressure to rear brakes during hard braking. Do you notice rear wheels squeling during hard braking. Do you have antilock brake system? Also are you using good quality pads and rotors.

2005 camry front control arm bushings


You have a lot of issues. Let me take each on one by one...

Front control arm bushings: In a word, unbelievable.
Maybe on a 1991 Camry, but not an 05 with 50 K miles. Nope. I would have to see it to believe it. I have YET to change any on any Camry 2000 and up. They simply do not fail. They might "look" bad, but I seriously doubt that they are bad. I have answered a question identical to this previously here at FixYA, and I had the golden opportunity to examine the exact vehicle in question, the owner and I were within 50 miles of each other. Same story, same diagnosis. She didn't need the repair, either. Besides, if they WERE bad, you would have SEVERE control issues with the steering, and tire wear of epic proportions. If you have neither of those 2 mentioned issues, you don't need the replacements.
Save your money.

Regarding the front brakes: The pads "sticking" in the brackets is unfortunately a common problem. The pads rust a bit, and they seize, and uneven wear is a normal result of the pads being "stuck". Personally, I think 320 dollars is a lot of money to just change the pads...The parts are like 53 dollars, and the labor is about an hour. I charge approx 145 dollars to replace ft pads, and I charge 20 bucks to clean and adjust the rear brakes.
Best advice: Go find another dealership. This one wants to rob you.

2004 Toyota Camry Brakes


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.
