Torque setting for brake job

Thought this should be included here:

Caliper: 25 lb-ft, or 34 Nm
Caliper bracket: 79 lb-ft, or 107 Nm
Tyre lugs: 76 lb-ft, or 103 Nm

Bump from the Graveyard but for any of you lurkers, You'd want to get the brake caliper from a 0-14 Scion XD OR 9-13 Corolla LE,STD model

If you are like me and hit up junkyards more often than you call your mum... itll be useful info

Just finished installing this setup on my car. It's actually the stuff in the pictures--bought them off Brushforhire after he totaled his. Install is super simple, barring any problems with stuck/rusted bolts. Still have to bleed the lines and refresh the brake fluid, but really looking forward to these!

Tell me how they feel, I put the bigger calipers on and while my booster might have been failing I hated the mooshy feel.

Sorry to bump an old thread - but will this work on a 2009 Yaris hatch with 15" wheels? I started compiling the parts and several OEM parts sites listed the rotors as fitting 2012 and on Yaris. I'm assuming they will but just need confirmation! My brakes are shot and I was considering this option vs slotted stoptech rotors from tire rack...

Shouldn't be a problem. I run Mini Cooper 15" alloys and they just clear.

Looks like I missed the notification on this one. I've probably got some air in the hydraulics still, they didn't really firm up even after bleeding them twice. It's currently down for a slipping clutch, hopefully not related.

I have a feeling the mushy feeling has to do with runnigmarger calipers without upgrading the rest of the system. The pedal feel would be very sensitive to changes in fluid volume and likely leading to more pedal throw being needed (read: mushy feeling)

They tried something like this on the micra cup cars in the rear and found it threw everything off if the rest of the system wasn't properly matched

Posting an update for posterity!

I ran some OEM-grade pads with these on the road and they were acceptable. Tried them at the track and the pads were unable to deal with the heat. Changed over to Hawk HPS pads (HB627F.690), bled the lines and bedded in the pads. Phenomenal difference in stopping power and braking confidence! The pedal still has a lot of travel before it starts to engage but that may be related to the difference in brake boosters between the xD and the Yaris.
