Do not tighten the bolts by hand. Foolish. I did that and now the top bolt in my drivers side caliper is gone. I noticed a rubbing sound yesterday (about 2 weeks after I changed my pads, looked at it today when I got to work, and the caliper is OFF the rotor and pads. Not good. What's more, the dealer had to order me a new bolt, so I was stuck driving this limping car around all day. Not good when it concerns your brakes. I hope nothing else in the system got messed up in the process. DO NOT TIGHTEN THE BOLTS BY HAND. EVER. Come on, these are your brakes we're dealing with.

so you said that each tire has two pads. When I buy brake pads are they sold in a kit of 2 and so that means i only need to buy 4 or do I need to buy 8?

No! Lets say you're buying Duralast: you get the box. It should have 8 pads! Same as rears!

Thank you for the clear up on that. I Got confused on that note. Trying to find the best way to get new brake pads after 40k miles on them and Toyota charging 500 for both axels is not an ideal price range. I

sorry to bump an old thread. I changed mine yesterday. Easiest brake job ever... But something isn't right. After the install and test driving, while hard braking around the neighborhood getting the brakes seated and testing. It pulled hard to the right while shuddering, and there was a weird noise almost sounded like a rubber band twanging. I took it all apart and checked everything and all looked fine. The only thing I noticed was that the driver side rotor was loose while the passenger side was not. I've changed lots of brakes over the years and the rotors on my Jeep have always been loose so It doesn't seem like an issue. Since when everything is mounted and installed the rotor will be tight in place. Is that the possible cause or am I missing something?
