Does the 1998 vs 1999 TRD 4x4 Tacoma have the same brakes?

I went to Anything Auto to buy some EBC Yellow Stuff brake pads and Centric Premium rotors.

Anything Auto did not list any EBC "Yellow Stuff" brake pads for a 1998 Tacoma but, they listed them for a 1999 Tacoma. So I then went to EBC website and there is a different part number listed for each year. for 1998 DP4807R and DP4992R for 1999.

It was my understanding that the 1998 and 1999 had identical brake pads and rotors.

I don't want to order the wrong part and Anything Auto doesn't list anything for the 1998. I also called Anything Auto but, they were not much help.

Call a dealership and ask for part numbers.

If they're the same, then.......they're the same. If not...then ask them WHY and/or if you could interchange them.

I would've assumed they're the same also????

I think I heard TRD's have bigger brake calipers...could be mistaken though

Base model tacos had different calipers than the 4x4/prerunner tacos, they are smaller so I believe the rotors are smaller as well. The pads are different. I'm looking in my Haynes manual now, and the photos for the 2wd are smaller than the 4wd.
