The 100 pads only fit on the front, and yes I did fit them.
I also did a full flush and bleed of the brake fluid so hopefully improvements all round.
Also noticed a front outser wheel bearing was very loose and quite worn - fortunately they are the same as the back and I still had a part worn one that I had replaced in the autumn so a quick swap and repack should last a while.
As usual a quick pad change and bleed took led on to revealing other issues and took 7 hours in all.
Cheers,
Julian

Julian,
Did you have to grind down any of the pad surface to fit as I have heard
that many have had to do this because of a very tight fit especially on the
inside pads.

Hi There Julian
Thanks for your reply sorry but now comes the question, why will the 100s
only fit on the front , are the front rotors different a different size to
the rear.

Anthony,
The front pads fit without any grinding.
John,
I havent tried to fit 100 pads on the back but it's not really
needed. The stock pads are enough. The back wants to brake a lot less
than the front anyway.

Hi Anthony,
No, they slotted right in, but the rotors are quite worn - as Lal says
you only really need to skim the pads with new rotors.

Hi John,
I guess so - I've not seen a 100 series rear axle/caliper combination.

Hi Matt,
I would be disappointed if that were the case - Miler's are supposed to
provide some pretty good alternatives to the standard toyota pads.
I do expect a fair bit of the problem is with bedding in - the disks
are quire worn and I have also gone to a larger area pad (100 series)
in the front so it will be touching areas of the disk previously
untouched.
I'll give it another couple of 100 miles to see what happens.

Julian,
It may be the break fluid boiling especially if it has not been changed for
a while unless it is synthetic, though as you have said pads will have to
be bedded in.

Hi Anthony,
I hope not, flushed the whole system through with new synthetic fluid
when I changed the pads.
