    97 Tacoma...brakes are noisy (squeal) after it rains or is really humid outside. Is this common for these trucks? Theres about 30% left on the pads and rotors looks good. This is my first toyota so I havent a clue. I'll prob end up putting in new pads to see if it helps but I'd figured I'd ask first for any other suggestions. Thanks.

    Mine seems to happen once the truck has cooled down (mornings and after it's been parked a while).

    getting there....
    alot of times, you can use a section of sand paper on the drums and the brake shoes and that will take care of the problem. when they glaze up a little bit, they will start to squeal.
    as for the front brakes, you can use a bit f sand paper on the pads just to scuff them up a bit, and that may take care of the problem! i had to do this on my wifes mustang about once a month when we had it......she was hell on her brakes:D!
