the 20 trd camry front calipers look very much like the 08+ highlander calipers painted. so i'm sure if you get the 08+ highlander dual piston calipers, rotors and paint the calipers red it should be identical.
Yes, the caliper looks identical but bracket might be different. You can buy 08 highlander calipers, brackets, pads and rotors and they will fit directly on your 2017. I did it on my 2016 and they work great. It's a budget big brake upgrade.
I would think that the F/R brake force distribution would be carefully calibrated for minimum traction loss and tire wear, so wouldn't installing calipers with more piston area upset that balance?
Not to mention that the ABS and or SC is also likely calibrated to suit the stock setup(?).
Maybe I'm wrong for the situation (extended hard braking) where the stock calipers/pads fail to hold up their end of the bargain, but in general shouldn't there be some kind of re-calibration to go with a caliper swap?
Not sure, you might be right but I have had this setup for a year and a half and no issues. I drive about 28k a year and have been in many different braking situations. I believe abs system corrects for this. You not always have identical traction under all 4 wheels. Tire traction changes depending on situation and how the body of the car rolls.
Just had my oil change done today at a local shop and they tell me that I have an RMS leak (slow drip) that would cost $1350 to get it fixed since they have to take out the engine and all. They told me to see if it is still under the Toyota 5 year warranty (I paid off my car this...
I poked through the manual and could not find a specification for grease to use on the chassis. Anybody have any idea what to use?
Also, anyone have a comprehensive list of locations of all the fittings?
Does a gen 7 Camry even have grease fittings?
Well I was low on fuel , the light came on in my 2016 Camry 2.5L
So when you get to 1 miles to empty a message comes on Please Refuel .
How much of a reserve is there ..
I ended up putting 14.+ gallons in, This would of sucked on a Monday morning to run out of gas … o_O
I looked @ the beginning on DIY oil change but the link didn't work for me.
So the question : how hard is it to chang the oil and filter?
What synthetic oil is being used these days ?
Thanks for your help.
