    Seems Toyota never updated the description for fitment years. From this thread people have used them on 3rd gens.

    Is everybody sticking with TRD Pads? I've been looking around at different brake upgrade options and finally settled on the stop tech rotors. Wondering if anyone's tried this with ebc yellow stuff pads? I noticed on their website it lists them as high friction pads. Wondering if they'll have a better bite then the TRD pads...

    I wouldn’t suggest rear discs on a TRD OR or Pro. The fluid volume requirements are larger for calipers vs drums, meaning you will get excessive pedal travel and with increased fluid demand from a front BBK + rear disc conversion will be pretty marginal on being able to meet the braking fluid demands. Non-ATRAC trucks can swap to a larger Sequoia master cylinder to up the volume capacity, but ATRAC trucks would need a larger ATRAC master cylinder. You’d like need to experiment with a late model 4runner ATRAC MC swap, and those cost more than the BBK kits. I looked into it but hadn’t found anyone that had done it.

    How do the Stoptechs Slotted compare to the centric 120? Centrics about $55 each compared to the stoptechs for close to $140 each.

    That is interesting. Since centric owns stop-tech......I wonder if it’s just the name

    any recommended online retailer for these stoptech rotors?

    also, what do you guys do for the rear rotors/pads? I don't see a lot of discussion about the rears

    I ended up going with the centrics...I saw a lot of people commenting saying the only difference is the slots, and cryo. But the question is, is the cryo worth 3x the price.

    I ordered the Centrics off Amazon. Part number in pic. Rock Auto has them for a few dollars cheaper but Amazon had them to me in 2 days.
