It will be fine for that small of an amount of time.So I went to my local AAP store and bought Silglyde, boots, bushings, and caliper pins. Just ran out of time today so I couldn’t install anything. May not be able to get to it for a week. I should be ok until then correct?
Just clean and use a small amount of grease...if you use to much, the pins will want to come out on their own…..Other than cleaning out the bore as suggested earlier, is there anything i need to do to properly install the bushings and boots? How much silicone grease should I use?
Thanks again. Everyone has been very helpful and I appreciate it!
+1 on coating the hubs with Fluid Film. In two of my vehicles (not Toyotas) rusting/ corrosion can 'weld' the wheel to the hub making it damn near impossible to remove the wheel. You would not believe how I struggled to get wheels off - you would swear they were welded in place....A cheap/dirty approach is to coat the hub & inside of the wheel where it bolts up to the hug with NeverSieze...Especially in the rust belt, you should be cleaning and lubricating your brakes every 30k/36 months. I would also suggest you coat your hubs with Anti-Sieze and Fluid Film or something similar. No, this isn't in the manual, but it is a good rule of thumb.
I would at a minimum remove the slide pins and clean and lubricate them. You might want to do this every spring.
The pads I used have the shim permanently attached to them. Cannot put grease there. You put grease on the caliper plunger lip, correct?Yes, reuse the stainless Toyota shims. I place brake grease on the back of the pad (between the shim and pad) and then on the caliper ears and plunger/cylinder.
