    My steering wheel has started vibrating under braking. I'm at 79k miles.
    I have a 2013 4 door SR5 prerunner with the tow package.
    I found someone on Craigslist selling a set of rotors:
    http://charlotte.craigslist.org/pts/5709432821.html
    Will they fit on my truck and be an improvement over OEM ( I was quoted $158 for the front set today)?
    This is another option I've found:
    https://www.amazon.com/Power-Stop-K137-Ceramic-One-Click/dp/B005FKS28C?ie=UTF8&ref_=cm_sw_su_dp
    I will be having a shop do the install ( not the dealership). I just want to bring them the right parts to work with.

    The total quote from the dealership for pads and rotors was $276


    Thank you,
    Ryan

    See if the dealer will match online pricing. I would go that route vs bother with craigslist.

    Ryan, you should really consider DIY. Hardest part of the job for me was jacking the truck up & taking the wheels off.

    Thanks for the help!
    I'll be asking the dealer about a price match.
    I do change my own oil. Just never really had great success changing my own brakes on my previous civic. I kinda just wanted to transfer the liability to someone else.
    I'll look for some DIY instructions and see if it's my kind of think I can do with confidence.

    Thanks again,
    Ryan
