    Anybody have any suggestions for front brake pads for my '06 4WD TRD? A friend suggested pads by a company called Downy or Downey but I can't find anything about them online.

    I'm not a heavy duty off-roader but I don't want to be caught in a situation with cheapo pads. Anybody got any advice?

    Thanks in advance.

    I've used those 'national autostore' pads without any problems on other vehicles. I wouldn't hesitate to use 'em again.

    Edwin at RaceShopper.com will set you up with a great price on the Hawk pads. Fast shipping too.

    If you really want to upgrade order a set of SP Performance slotted rotors and swap them out at the same time. :)
