I just changed a front caliper on mine and I hit 60k miles over the weekend. It started getting sticky last summer and in the fall I changed out to Brembo pads (BIG improvement in pedal feel and initial bite) and un-stuck the LF caliper with a big C-clamp. But a few weeks ago it started to stick again. Not uncommon for the caliper design really. This is my 17th Toyota 4x4 and I have put calipers on a LOT of them. Changing the brake fluid with quality fluid every 2 years is a good preventative measure too.

I have had horrible luck with reman calipers over the years for these. I bought a new one from raybestos for this job. And I have rebuild kits so one of these days when I'm bored at the shop I'll blow the pistons out and see if it's rebuildable for next time.
