    Looks like they all fit.

    Going to change my pads out for the first time. Any tips, will be my first time doing this. I am mechanically inclined!

    Happy Turkey day guys

    Little bit of stuff.
    I use the AZ100's on my Taco and our 4th gen 4Runners. No issues, nothing special.

    Whichever ones the 2015 TRD Pro 4Runner uses.

    'Course they won't fit unless you have 2015 TRD Pro 4Runner brakes...

    Now I'm curious though if they're a standard Akebono pad or if they're TRD .

    :notsure:

    First set at around 75K don't even remember what they were most likely NAPA. Just put the winter wheels on still good at 71K.

    I did break them in properly by doing the 10 hard decelerations back to back. Dust is nonexistent.

    04465 04080 are for 5 luggers.

    04465 AZ100 - are cheaper different material OEM pads
    04465 04070 - are the same ones used on the assembly line that have a good long lasting pad life. Go with these.

    the TRD pads are known to not last long and be quite dirty (but have good stopping power)

    Huh, I wonder why my trd pads don’t have any dust at all. Maybe it’s because I drive gently and am constantly engine braking?

    I’m wondering if anyone knows if the oem pads comes with a hardware kit? I’ll be getting 04465-04080 for a 5 lug. Or if there’s a part number for a hardware kit? I’m tempted to go with ACT906B akebono pads from Napa instead, looks to include the hardware.

    I used Brembo pads and rotors when I did my 13WH caliper conversion, smooth, quiet, great feel, and no dust.

    OEM Toyota pads. Dust is almost zero. I have 105K on my truck , original pads plus now on second replacement set. I changed oems out at about 50k but it really wasn't required. Original rotors look like new, never replaced or machined. Rear brakes have about 2/3 total material thickness left at thinnest point. These are mostly local driving miles too.
