According to my manual.......
If you are talking about bolts that hold front caliper mount bracket to knuckle.. pre-2009 are 148 lbft.
If you are talking about the caliper mounting pins, then... Pre-2007 are 47 lbft
The rear pins are... 22 lbft for all years
1. Make sure all mating surfaces are cleaned w/ light grease film (I use NeverSieze) on them.
2. Make sure the fulcrum actuator for the rear e-brake is clean, moves free and is lubricated.
3. Be sure e-brake is adjusted correctly to prevent dragging.
Other than item #2 and 3, just a std disc brake job, like every other vehicle.
Did mine a couple of weeks ago and like night and day. E-brake even works now....
