    Does anyone here know if the hubs need to be removed in order to install new brake pads on the 2000 Land Cruiser? Or can I replace the pads without taking everything apart?

    It does appear that the hubs would need to be removed in order to pull the rotors, but since they aren't grooved very much I'm thinking I can just install new pads. Yes, no?

    I can not remember if the rotors are slide off or hubbed. Pull the tire and if you only see wheel studs and NO bolts they are slide off:)

    Yes, you can only install pads. Just pull the pin springs off first and use a screw driver to push the caliper pistons back to install new brakes.
