I'm about to change the front brake pads on my 2004 Taco. Looks pretty easy, pop off the the spring that holds the 2 pins, remove the pins, wiggle out the old pads, squeeze the pistons to make space to drop in the new pads and put it all back together.
I've done a bit of research and Akebono seems to be a good choice (I have this brand on my wife's Sienna swaggerwagon and happy with them) that I plan to install on my taco OEM Toyota calipers.
The Problem: a couple of people have reported issues of the pads not fitting properly due to ordering the wrong part # yet Akebono site says it will fit wth?
Here's what I found after searching numerous online vendors: (All are labeled Akebono ProACT Ultra-premium ceramic)
For the 2004 Toyota Tacoma-
ACT799 (looks squarish)
ACT436 (looks squarish)
ACT589 (has round edges)
Has anyone here install a set successfully with the right fit on a 2001-04 tacoma? If so, of the three I listed above, which part # did you purchase?
Thanks a bunch!
