    If you feel it the pedal (pualsating) then it called anti-lock brakes. They are just noisy in tacomas.

    most brake pads have little metal pieces that will screach when you hit the breaks so that you know when its time to change your pads. check to see if your pads are getting worn down and if the little metal prongs are the screaching metal noise. be my best guess

    i'd defenetly check your pads then cause you wont feel anything they just make a sound to warn you they are getting low and need replacing soon. and you would only hear it when you press on the brakes

    +1, same sound. Not the ABS. Seems to be coming from the pedal assembly under the dash. First heard at ~ 14K miles. 2.7 L.

    Found out what it was...It was the metal shroud around the back side of the brakes. It was bent in a little bit
