Post 2nd gen brakes

I have a 2011 Tacoma 4dr long bed 35k miles. Brakes pulsate and slight vibrations during braking. I'm thinking warped rotors has anyone had this issue.

Any recommendations on brake rotors slotted or drilled or standard / pads trd or oem or ceramic or semi metallic cheap. I drive like I stole it

Any suggestions or tips on repairing brakes would be great!

I went with factory pads. The original set was removed after 5 years (last year). Prices were comparable to other replacement pads. I didn't need anything fancy but didn't want cheopo quality either.

If the pads are not worn out scuff them up with sand paper, clean the shims and re lube with anti seize. If the rotors are under 26.0 mm (1.024 in.) after turning them they require replacement. You should be ok if they are not warped too badly.

Check your wheel bearings too! My truck had this issue at 50k-60k. Then I drove to FL and back & had to get another new part.=Really bad experience. Totally screwed up my new TRD pads.
