For daily driving i would stick with stock. My truck has 42K on the original pads and the crazy thing its an auto. As you can tell im not heavy on the brake only when i need to be. So far im alittle half worn on my pads.mxbx said:My question is which front brake pad is better preferred by you guys....TRD vs regular Toyota
At Autozone you can pick up the TRD pads without the TRD badging for about $30 I think. And they may still come with a lifetime warranty. I've already replaced mine since I bought them, and they just gave me a new set when I brought in the old. The TRD pads are made by Performance Friction and Autozone sells them. If you want to save yourself $2, ask for the ones for a 1996 Landcruiser. Different part #, different price, same exact product. Oh, and don't tell them your truck is a 2wd if your a prerunner. None of these places can get it that our truck parts are EXACTLY the same as a 4wd (W/ the exception of the CV's, transfer case, ect.).mxbx said:My question is which front brake pad is better preferred by you guys....TRD vs regular Toyota
The pulsation your feeling is not your pads. It's your rotors. They have become warped from heat.thongo said:My original front pad breake worn out at 25,000 miles....it seem like too fast huh?

I'm not 100% sure on the specs for your rotor, but it will be stamped right on it. That's not the whole problem though. When a rotor is warped, there is a different measurement that needs to be made to determine if the rotor can be turned or not. I think it is called a "run out" or something like that. It measures just how warped the rotor is. Any good brake shop will know what I'm referring to if you plan on taking them in yourself. The good news is Tacoma rotors are not that expensive or hard to replace.thongo said:Thnakyou so much, BILL and Eluke.............what is specs thickness? would you give me the link that sell that breake, Thanks a lot
the fluid change wont help you, hutter did the same thing on his taco along time ago and it still burnt the fluid pretty quickly...BLOWNYOTa said:I have Brembo rotors and Performance Friction Carbon Metalic pads on my truck, and i call still get them to fade pretty bad. I have been thinking of changing over to DOT 5.1, to see if that will eliminate it. Has anyone tried that fluid in a tacoma yet. (did a search and couldn't get any hits).
hey douchebag, how much did that set u back?DesertTRD said:the fluid change wont help you, hutter did the same thing on his taco along time ago and it still burnt the fluid pretty quickly...
I changed over to Irotors slotted/crossdrilled and their pads.. i have had awesome braking ever since.. its really hard to get them to fade.. hell I smoked em once or twice and they still feel straight and solid.
they run around 200 for the pads and rotors...peekay331 said:hey douchebag, how much did that set u back?
