Andymann6,

Are you looking for the standard discs, or are you wanting to upgrade due to not finding the standard?

Most (if not all) parts dealers should carry disc brakes. As far as upgrading, there may not be, and you would either need to contact an auto parts dealer, or the Toyota dealership.

Please let me know if you need any further assistance.

Thank you,

carsandcomps,

Brakes on a Lincoln mark viii coupe 1995 fitted new M/cylinder L/front and R/rear wont bleed is somthing wrong in the abs and how much for a new unit


All four brakes must be bled to eliminate the trapped air...probably not anything else...try lubricating the bleeder fitting with PB Blaster before trying to open...be cautious as this valve can break off, and that means rebuild the caliper drill out broken fitting...or replace caliper...either way all 4 brakes must be bled...start with the rear farthest away from the master cylinder then other rear...then right front, then last is left front...Hope this helps.

Could u please give me step by step instructions on how to fix my rear brakes how to bleed and what to unscrew to fit brake pad around rotor disc. Please i have to work. Dnt want to get fired.


You have to take the whole brake unit off the disc. Usually two bolts holding it to it's mounting. Fit the new pads to it and put it back on. You will have to force them apart to fit them over the disc. Should not need to bleed the brakes. Make sure the bolts are tight.

I just bought my 2004 buick lesabre and I already need new brake pads. I dont know whether I should get med grade pads or (high grade)ceramic pads. If I get the high grade would I special rotors?


You can use your stock rotors with ceramic pads. If you feel that the pads wore down too quickly then they may have been a less than optimal type. Keeping disc brakes clean is key to making them last longer. When there is brake dust and naturally occurring rust built up in the calipers and slides, then they don't release immediately or completely when you let off the brake pedal and they may actually drag your pads.

Replace the rear brake drum system with disc brake system


Rear discs and callipers are much smaller. You are going to need the right stuff to do this or you will have too much effort to rear and they will lock up.
