After my inspection I found that both inner calipers has seized pistons and when I inspected the rear calipers they were also seized.

This was sad to hear especially we just purchased the 4Runner less that 8 months and have complained several time at the dealership we purchased from and they stated that their was nothing wrong with the brakes.

So I decided to inspect to find that front, back, and e-brakes had to be replaced. I just completed cleaning ,painting and rebuilding the calipers. Today I just finished installing the Power Stop kit front and back with stainless steel front brake lines and the car drives without the death wobble.

So if you need any help let me know.

This gives me hope! I've noticed a bit of a wobble/shake in my steering wheel the last few thousand miles (couple of months). I've had new tires put on (which cut down on road noise but now makes me hear other things). I'm due for new brakes here soon and will replace the rotors as well.

I'm just trying to figure out if it's a wheel bearing or CV that's going bad. I'm at aprox 80,000 miles but do have a 2.5" lift on the front.
