This kit includes Tundra rotors and calipers and all lines and hardware necessary to make the change. The kit for my '03 DC 4x4 sells for $575 with Hawk LTS pads. Seems like a good deal.
I would like to hear some feedback on quality, performance and ease of installation.
I also looked at this kit. Add $100 to price for shipping. I am sure this kit works well. I have had these installed since Monday Power Stop slotted rotors for a 2001 Tundra with Hawk LTS 199mm pads from http://www.ajusa.com/
for less than $160 with free shipping. Purchased front & rear stainless hoses from http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/9504tacolines.htm
less than $120 shipped. I purchased these calipers from Auto Zone http://www.autozone.com/autozone/par...9_0_5913_56968
about $160 after returning cores,they didn't care that they were Tacoma cores. I also ran five 12oz bottles of Toyota DOT 3 brake fluid into the system to bleed and replace old fluid. They work as well as they did when I drove it from show room floor,real difference should come in towing a boat in the mountains. Bending the backing plate was the only difference in installing Tundra brakes and Tacoma replacements, same as the LCE kit.
