A much needed brake upgrade! PICS

So having owned my Tacoma for a few months now, the first thing I noticed when I test drove it was the shaky steering wheel everytime I stepped on the brake. Being a mechanic that gets payed this didnt stop my purchase, instead it gives me an excuse to make it a little better than stock. So I puchased a pair of Powerslot rotors, Hawk pads, and got a free set of brakelines compliments of Techna-fit. (We buy alot of brake lines from them so their really cool about hookin up employee vehicles.)
Here are some pics from the install, this first one just being the shop I work out of. Science of Speed, NSX & S2000 performance specialists.

A shot of the truck on the rack, I know I could have done this in my driveway but im spolied.

New parts

Old stuff taken off

New parts installed

The final result, it cost me about 200 bucks and some time. But the best part is it stops like it supposed to with no shaking and might offer slighty better braking over factory rotors and pads.

Thanks for lookin, Im sure there will be more to come.
