TRD Big Brake Kit

I am at the point where I need to replace my rotors and pads. I am having trouble figuring out if you can buy rotors other than the TRD ones. Any help would be wonderful!

Make sure you purchase the correct size.
My TRD BBK is 332x32. I purchased these and swapped them out, it was easy. I'd recommend new brake fluid too, make sure you bleed both sides of each caliper properly to get new fluid throughout.

and the pads my BBK uses are ST-40

Someone is selling a set of the shoes for the TRD BBK for an XR in the BST section, then all you would need is the calipers.

The BBK does not use shoes, it is a disk brake, as is all Tacoma front ends.

He should already have calipers for his BBK, I read his post as he needs rotors and pads.

I think he just used the word shoes a little too loosely.

Hey, You're from SJ... Why don't you ever go to any X-Runner'ish events?

Thanks a lot, I have never found just the rotor rings. That saves a lot of money. It seemed like I was going to be buying the entire rotor.
