Thanks!
I did the 5th gen setup on my 4th a while back. Worked great when it did, but in the end every OEM caliper upgrade I've done has seized.

Update on install

Just an update on longevity.

My right front Centric reman lasted 4.5 years and 35K miles before seizing. I expected a bit longer life. Although can't really say it's better or not without using new calipers.

Driver's side was fine. Akebono pads were in great shape on the functioning side. Would highly recommend those.

Replaced them both with O'Riellys and Wagner OEX 976 pads because they had them in stock and I wanted to fix it the same day. I'm sure that was/ will be a mistake LOL. (Caliper hardware included was incorrect - twice...had to polish old pins and reuse. Pads fit fine, but don't seem to be as strong stopping as the Akebono)

Do these not work on normal slides that can be serviced periodically to keep from seizing?

First Toyota, never tore into one before.

Usually the issue is the piston/s seizing in the bore.

Same here. Not a slide pin issue. Piston issues.
