Inspect the caliper and hoses for any damage or leaks and replace any worn components as necessary. Finally, replace the brake pads and reinstall the wheels. For drum brakes first, remove the brake drum and inspect the brake shoes and wheel cylinders. Replace any damaged or worn components as necessary. Replace the brake drum and reinstall the wheels, applying the amount of torque on the lug nuts as recommended by Subaru.
