    All,

    It's Sunday and all the stores are closed so I thought I would ask you if I bought the correct parts or not :)

    From Best Brakes I purchased:

    the EBC Yellowstuff pads DP41657R

    and EBC GD Rotor GD7273

    The rotors and pads look to be correct but I had to stop because I could not get my rotor to budge:(

    What is the secret, I beat the heck out of it to no avail!!

    Appreciate any and all recommendations!

    one more thing, the last time I worked on front pads was on my 1981 fj40.
    Am I correct in all I do is pull the 2 pins on the caliper, release the pressure and pull the pads?

    Hey Guys, Been searching threads with EBC brakes and saw this one. I'm looking to upgrade rotors and pads, and really like the EBC Stage 2 slotted rotors, and the greenstuff pads. I'm trying to confirm 100% the fit for the 2nd gen tacoma, I have a 2012 - 4wd. Is it as simple of looking for 319mm x 28mm rotors, and any discs with those dimensions should fit? 6 lug. One website said they fit, another said vehicle doesnt fit. Its frustrating. Thanks for any help / advice...

    I’ve had these on my truck for ten years, not sure what “stage” they are but have been holding up much better than stockers
