The caliper support spring was removed from the front brakes, causing the shoes to drag
What are you even talking about here?
I thought it might be entertaining to have a thread about the signs of abuse, strange quirks, badly done maintainance, etc that we have found on used Toyotas.
The DIYer probably couldn't figure out how they went back in after switching pads, have found them installed backwards before, or they had broke and he was too cheep to buy buy new hardware.
According to the FSM and the parts list, there is a spring to keep the front calipers from dragging on the disks when the brakes are not applied. Apparently, at some point someone decided that part was optional because when we did the front brake job it was just gone.
Had a friend put His clutch in backwards twice.
