Brake Pads

Just want to check, because I know some people here work for Toyota. My local dealer has a bunch of knuckleheads working in parts, and before I get myself out in the garage, and taking everything apart, does one of you know if I got the right part number here for my brake pads:
04465-04050
I have a 2002 Tacoma 4x4 V6 Extra Cab TRD.
Thanks,
TCS

Hey that was fast! Thanks! I got those pads for $13.50 after coupon and encore gift certificate, both of which would have expired soon, so I felt this would be a good purchase. I've got about 45K on my truck, so I figured its probably about time.
Thanks again,
TCS

That's cool. Without special coupons or certificates they are normally about $29

You can get a lot more than 45K on a set of pads.

I get the Performance Friction pads from autozone. Word is that they are the same are the TRD pads--doesn't matter much to me because they work well and have a lifetime warranty.

I haven't heard the squeekers yet, and actually haven't even inspected the pad thickness either. I just got the pads because I had the coupon and gift certificate. Heck, I hope these pads last till 55 or 60K, but in the past, on my other toyota trucks, 45K would have been about right.

Not at my local dealers! Both of them want $48ish for them. Southern California dealers are greedy, or at least the ones that are close to me are.

Dealer just told me I need new ones after 33,000 miles. It's mostly highway driving too. I think they were full of it. Anyways I think I'll do the change myself. They wanted $170.

Do you know why they call it "PMS"? Because "Mad Cow Disease" was taken.

Mine are acting weird, just changed. If i stop fast no noise. If I stop slow right at the end they vibrate, no pulsing. Ideas?
