    Looking to put a set of drilled/slotted rotors on my 2004 Tacoma d-cab. Along with those I was going to use ceramic pads. Ebay has no shortage of choices. Any recommendations for a brand or seller in and out of Ebay? Also has anyone done this upgrade?

    if i were you, id maybe think of using some slotted rotors instead of slotted and drilled. i havent used slotted and drilled before, but i have heard lots of people talk about the cracking after heating up pretty good. power slot makes a very nice set of slotted rotors for the tacoma, and price isnt really bad. them with a set of hawk ceramics would be a great setup, with awesome stopping power. check otu this company for brake setups.......

    Edwin at RaceShopper.com (1-800-733-8380) will set you up. I've used them for brakes on about 15 different vehicles and have never received a wrong part. Have never had their rotors warp on me either, and I'm pretty hard on brakes. I had 1 truck that would require new rotors every 25,000 miles. Once I went to slotted from raceshopper, never had to replace them again.

    Great prices, fast shipping, and their products are top-notch.

    No paid endorsement here. I'm just a very satisfied repeat customer. :thumbsup:
